Flavorsome black beans and baked potatoes. Eating a bowl like this just makes you feel good about life. It doesn’t get cleaner than this. My favorite plant based protein of all times, black beans. Sweet potatoes, not only packed with all the goodies of life but also a low glycemic index carb. We all need some good fats and avocados just happen to be my thing. There is something about sour cream that just draws me. So skip if you’re vegan but I couldn’t help myself.
It’s bean prep day for me and before freezing a batch for future use, I save some for a meal. This hearty black bean and sweet potato bowl just happened to be the meal. Once you have your beans ready , you are good to go. That’s the difficult part. Whenever I plan on making this dish, I put my beans in a crockpot first thing in the morning. It takes about six hours to be ready. Alternatively you can soak overnight and the beans should be ready in about two hours. Oh, and don’t forget to salt.
You are definitely not bound to enjoying this with sweet potatoes. Actually it goes great with rice too. A black bean and rice bowl sounds just as delicious and its a complete protein. Plantains and cocoyams are other amazing options options.
A super easy one to try and I hope you get to do that. I love hearing from you so do let me know how it turns out, here or through Instagram.
