Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
150g sweet potato, cut into 1 cm cubes
1 teaspoon hot paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
60ml olive oil
4 garlic cloves, crushed
400g tinned black beans, drained
125ml chicken or vegetable stock
60g plain yoghurt
4 Corn tortillas
red onion, thinly sliced, to serve
parmesan, grated, to serve (optional)
lime wedges, for squeezing over

Cracked quinoa

Quantity Ingredient
1 teaspoon olive oil
50g quinoa, (cooked weight)

Method

  1. In a bowl, combine the sweet potato with the paprika and cumin until well coated. Heat two-thirds of the olive oil in a heavy-based saucepan over low–medium heat. Gently fry the sweet potato for 10 minutes, or until tender and starting to caramelise.
  2. Meanwhile, make the cracked quinoa. Heat the olive oil in a non-stick frying pan and fry the quinoa over medium heat for 3–4 minutes, or until crunchy. Set aside to cool.
  3. When the sweet potato is cooked, remove three-quarters to a bowl and set aside. Add the remaining olive oil and the crushed garlic to the pan and gently cook for 2 minutes. Add the beans and the stock, cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, make a crema by combining the yoghurt with 1 tablespoon water.
  5. Remove the lid from the pan and cook the bean mixture for another 2 minutes, or until it has thickened slightly.
  6. Warm the tortillas in a non-stick frying pan over a high heat for about 10 seconds each, or until they become soft and pliable.
  7. Spoon the bean mixture onto the warmed tortillas and top with the spiced sweet potato, the crema, the cracked quinoa, red onion and parmesan, if using. Finish with a fresh squeeze of lime.
