These delicious baked sweet potatoes with black bean salsa are served with a creamy avocado dressing. Such an easy and tasty meal!
To reduce the cooking time, cut the sweet potatoes in half lengthwise. You can prepare the black bean salsa and the creamy avocado dressing while the sweet potatoes are in the oven. Once cooked, simply create a small cavity in the flesh of the sweet potatoes and spoon a generous amount of black bean salsa on top of the potatoes.
The quantities for the black bean salsa are quite generous so if you have any leftovers, serve them the next day in a wrap.
This recipe for baked sweet potatoes with black bean salsa is bursting with some beautiful Mexican flavours. This is a popular meal for the whole family.
Sweet potatoes are a powerhouse of nutritional goodness and taste fantastic. They are rich in fibre and are a good source of beta-carotene, vitamin B and C, as well as antioxidants.
I love cooking with them as they accommodate many different types of spices such as in my sweet potato & chickpea Moroccan stew or these sweet and soft baked sweet potatoes with a topping of mild and juicy spinach chana masala.
