Baked Sweet Potato + All The Fixings

By Healing Lifestyles and Spas

Recipe courtesy of Food Matters

Servings: 3

Ingredients

  • 3 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 white onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked pinto beans (if canned, rinsed and salt-free)
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp cumin
  • 2 tbsp tomato concentrate
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • salt

Optional Garnishes

  • lime crema
  • cilantro
  • scallions
  • micro greens
  • avocado
  • fresh lime juice

What To Do

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Pierce each potato a few times with a fork. Place on a parchment paper-lined sheet pan, and roast for 60-75 minutes or until you can easily pierce the skin with a knife and the inside is soft. Allow to cool slightly before slicing and stuffing.
  2. While the potatoes cook, warm the coconut oil in a medium sized sauté pan or dutch oven. Add the onions and cook until caramelized, about 10 to 15 minutes. Add 1 tbsp water to the pan and scrape any brown bits stuck to the bottom in order to deglaze.
  3. Stir in spices and tomato concentrate and toast for 30 seconds. Add the bell pepper and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Once softened, stir in the beans, add a pinch of salt, and allow the flavors to meld together for 5 minutes.
  4. Slice each potato down the center, almost through to the bottom. Open to reveal the orange flesh. Spoon in the beans and top with selected garnishes.

Lima Crema

  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt (use dairy free yogurt to keep vegan)
  • juice of 1 lime
  • water if needed

What To Do

Whisk together lime juice and yogurt. Add water, a tsp at a time to thin, if desired.
