Recipe Ingredients for Roasted Sweet Potato and Black Bean Filling

600 g sweet potatoes
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup uncooked brown rice
1 1/2 cup water
1 onion
2 garlic cloves
1 red bell pepper
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 cup black beans, cooked
2 cups fresh spinach

Recipe Directions for Roasted Sweet Potato and Black Bean Filling

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.

  2. Dice sweet potatoes into bite-sized pieces. (This is important- I wasn't thinking and cut mine into large chunks, then I had to do some damage control after they were cooked. Remember- these are a taco filling!)

  3. Lay sweet potatoes out on a baking sheet and toss with 1 tablespoons olive oil. Roast in oven at 400F for 45 minutes, until tender and slightly browned. Allow to rest 5 minutes after cooking.

  4. When the potatoes are in the oven, fill a medium pot with water and brown rice. Heat on high. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes. Check back after 20 minutes to see if rice is drying out. If so, add 2 tablespoons more water.

  5. While rice and potatoes cook, dice the onion, garlic and pepper. Toss into a large pan with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Cook over medium heat until tender.

  6. During this time, rinse your beans and wash the spinach. Chop the spinach in two directions for small bites.

  7. Mix cumin, chili powder and smoked paprika into the onion/ pepper mix. Salt and pepper, to taste. Add beans and rice when ready. Mix in spinach and allow to wilt.

  8. When the potatoes are ready, add them to the pan and toss well.

  9. Allow the flavors to come together over medium heat for three or four minutes.
