Do you guys like sweet potatoes? I do 🙂 the majority of the time when I’m looking for sweet potatoes at the grocery store I can’t find the typical orange colored potatoes. These white ones are just as good though!
These spicy beans and greens served on top of the sweet potato is super tasty! There are 3 different types of beans with delicious cooked kale. I feel like a lot of people try raw kale for the first time and hate it. If you hate kale and have never tried it cooked I highly recommend you give it another try. I love how it soaks up the flavor of the other things it’s cooked with. I got the idea for these spicy beans and greens from this vegan app I downloaded a couple of years ago. It’s called 21-Day Vegan Kick Start. I haven’t tried all the recipes on there but the few I have, have been super delicious. If you happen to actually be vegan you should totally download this app! I hope you guys love this recipe as much as I do.
P.S. This was a tough one to photograph, because let’s be honest… potatoes, kale and beans, don’t make the most photogenic combination. But they make a great combination on my taste buds 🙂
4 sweet potatoes
1 can pinto beans
1 can white beans
I can garbanzo beans
2 cloves of garlic minced
3/4 cup vegetable broth
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 cups chopped kale
1. Preheat the oven to 400˚ F. Prepare the sweet potatoes by washing and drying and poking holes in them. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 40-45 minutes.
2. While the potatoes are cooking drain and rinse the white, pinto and garbanzo beans. Place in a large pot along with the vegetable broth, minced garlic, cayenne pepper and salt and pepper to taste.
3. Bring to a boil and then mix in the kale. Cook for a few minutes until kale is bright green and tender.
4. Scoop bean mixture onto cut open sweet potatoes and enjoy!
