Health Highlights


1 can (15oz) Black beans, canned (rinsed)
1/4 cup Cilantro (coriander) (chopped)
1 tsp Cilantro (coriander), dried
1 tsp Cumin
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
3/4 tsp Salt
1/4 cup Sour cream, fat free
4 medium potato Sweet potato
2 medium Tomato (diced)


Prick sweet potatoes with a fork in several places. Microwave on high until tender all the way to the centre, 12 to 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a medium microwaveable bowl, combine beans, tomatoes, oil, cumin, coriander and salt; microwave on high until just heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.

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