Ingredients

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 medium avocado ripe
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 bell pepper diced
  • 1 can black beans or kidney beans
  • 1 tsp chipotle powder or other spice mix
  • 2 tbsp salsa (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1/4 cup vegan cheddar grated
  • 1 tbsp spring onion chopped

Directions

  • Using a fork, poke some holes into each sweet potato, and bake them for 45 minutes at 200ºC.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in a pan over medium heat, and add the onion and bell pepper. Sauté until soft.
  • Add the beans, cook until heated through, then add the spice mix.
  • Mash the avocados in a small bowl and mix in the lime juice.
  • Check the sweet potatoes after 45 minutes, they should be soft. Remove them from the oven, make a slice along their length, and open them up to make space for the beans.
  • Spoon the beans onto the sweet potatoes, followed by the salsa, vegan cheese, avocado and spring onions.
  • Serve immediately :)
