Superfoods Superfast

I know what you’re thinking… how can cooking sweet potatoes take 20 minutes or less? Well, it can! You just need to boil them like you would white potatoes. The sweet potato combined with the black beans almost makes this seem rather meaty. It’s super filling, super healthy and the sauce is super amazing!


Quantity Ingredient
4 small sweet potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 red pepper, seeds removed and chopped
1 x 400g tin black beans, drained and rinsed
1 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon chilli powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
4 wholemeal tortillas

For the avocado cream

Quantity Ingredient
1 avocado, peeled and stoned
1 garlic clove, crushed
large handful coriander
120ml coconut or soya yogurt
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon honey
sea salt freshly ground black pepper


  1. Place the sweet potatoes in a medium saucepan. Fill with enough water to cover and bring to the boil over a medium-high heat. Boil for 7 minutes, at which point they should be tender.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for 5 minutes. Drain the sweet potatoes and add them to the pan along with the red pepper, black beans, lime juice and spices. Cook over a medium-high heat for another 5 minutes. Take the pan off the heat and mash the sweet potatoes and beans, but keep them ‘chunky’. Layer the tortillas with the sweet potato and black bean mixture.
  3. Add all the ingredients for the avocado cream to a food processor or blender and blitz until smooth.
  4. Spread the avocado cream on top of the sweet potato mixture and fold the tortillas to make burritos.
