Black Bean-Smothered Sweet Potatoes

For a quick and satisfying last-minute supper, it’s hard to beat a sweet potato zapped in the microwave. The fragrant filling of beans and tomato adds protein, making it a nutritionally complete entree. Be sure to eat the potato skin; it’s full of fiber.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 can(s) 15 oz - black beans rinsed
  • 1 medium tomato diced
  • 2 teaspoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 2 tablespoon(s) reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoon(s) fresh cilantro chopped

Preparation

  1. 1. Prick sweet potatoes with a fork in several places. Microwave on High until tender all the way to the center, 12 to 15 minutes. (Alternatively, place in a baking dish and bake at 425ºF until tender all the way to the center, about 1 hour.)

  2. 2. Meanwhile, combine beans, tomato, oil, cumin, coriander and salt in a medium microwave-safe bowl; microwave on High until just heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. (Alternatively, heat in a small saucepan over medium heat.)

  3. 3. When just cool enough to handle, slash each sweet potato lengthwise, press open to make a well in the center and spoon the bean mixture into the well. Top each with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of cilantro.
