Ingredients

  • 4 sweet potatoes medium sized
  • 1/3 cup black beans from a can drained
  • 1 cup brocoli florets
  • 1 green capsicum small sized
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 lime juiced
  • salt & pepper
  • boccocini cheese optional

Instructions

  • Stab sweet pototoes along the front anf back and place in a microwave for 10 minutes.
  • Whilst sweet potatoes are cooking dice up your veggies and mix together in a bowl with the black beans,paprika, lime juice and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Once the sweet potatoes are cooked let sit for 5 minutes then cut in half - watch for the steam it can be really hot. With a small spoon begin to scoop out the flesh of the sweet potato into the bowl with the other ingredients, leaving the skins intact.
  • Mix the sweet potato and all other ingredients together, seasoning with extra salt and pepper if needed. Scoop the micture out and place back into the potato skins. Do this for each potato skin.
  • When each skin is filled with the mixture top with bocconcini cheese and place in the oven for 15 minutes until cheese is melted.
  • When cooked top with some cracked black pepper and your favourite hot sauce. Serve by itself or with a side salad. Pair with a session ale or a summer ale for a delicious light dinner.

Notes

  • If you do not have a microwave you can cook the sweet potato in the oven please note that this will take longer than if prepping the sweet potato in the microwave. 
  • If you would like to make this vegan just omit the cheese or replace with your favourite vegan cheese. 
  • To keep the skins intact you will need to leave a small amount of the flesh when scooping out so that they keep their shape.
  • If you would like your cheese to be more crunchy broil them under the grill for 5 minutes.
