Last week in Veganville

Albeit, 4th of July weekend was an epic fail in Veganville. However, I did stay "clean" all week long. Here is, by far and away, my favorite recipe from last week.
Smashed Sweet Potatoes with Citrusy Black Beans
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed
1 can black beans
1 clove garlic, smashed
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
zest and juice from 1 lime
salt and pepper to taste

fresh avocado slices
crushed plantain chips (I LOVE Trader Joe's Plantain Chips)
chopped fresh cilantro

Boil sweet potato until tender. Drain and smash with cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Drain beans. In a saucepan, combine beans, lime juice, lime zest, cayenne pepper, smashed garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Heat over low heat until hot and fragrant. Serve beans over smashed sweet potatoes. Garnish with one or any combination of the above suggested garnishes.

  1. Holy Yummy! I randomly had most of these things in my fridge from leftovers and loved dinner last night. Thanks for the idea!
