I made a great dinner last night! It was easy and delicious.
Let me back up. I was planning on making a sweet potato and black bean salad. My daughter had sent me the recipe and it looked good. But, with a multitude of email addresses, I couldn’t find the recipe! So I Googled “black bean and sweet potato recipe” and came up with this great one from Eating Well — Sweet Potatoes with Warm Black Bean Salad.
I adjusted the recipe a bit, as I didn’t have tomatoes and I didn’t want the sour cream.
This is what I did:
- Microwave 1 sweet potato (about 5 min)
- Mix 1/2 can of black beans with 4 oz of salsa , and heat on stove or in microwave
- Slice sweet potato, press to make a well in the middle and pour the bean and salsa mixture into the well.
I served it with some steamed kale for a colorful plate!
