Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 70 minutes

Ingredients

Serves: 4 people

  • 1 pinch Black Pepper
  • 2 cloves Garlic
    chopped
  • 2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 400 g Kidney Beans
    rinsed and drained
  • 1 - Lime
    juice only
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 - Red Chilli
    deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1 large SuperValu Avocado
    halved and stoned
  • 25 g SuperValu Fresh Coriander
  • 3 - SuperValu Scallions
    finely chopped
  • 5 medium Sweet Potatoes
    (approx. 1.5 - 2kg)
  • 100 g Tinned Corn
    rinsed and drained, or thawed frozen corn

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180oC/gas mark 4.
  2. Cut the ends off the sweet potatoes, then cut the potatoes in half. Place them on a baking tray, cut side up, and roast for 50 minutes to 1 hour, until a fork inserted into the flesh comes out easily and they smell amazing!
  3. Holding the halved sweet potatoes in a tea towel, use a spoon to scoop out the flesh into a large mixing bowl. Try to leave a thin layer of flesh around the skin, though, so that the skin can stand up on its own. Place the skins back on the baking tray and return to the oven for a further 10 minutes to allow the skins to get nice and crispy.
  4. Meanwhile, mash the scooped-out sweet potato flesh. Add the kidney beans, corn, coriander, spring onions, garlic, chilli, lime juice, cumin, paprika and a pinch of salt and pepper and mix all the ingredients thoroughly. Remove the potato skins from the onion and divide the filling evenly between them.
  5. Use a spoon to scoop the avocado out of its skin, then cut into slice. Top each sweet potato with slices of avocado and serve straight away.
