Recipe (makes 2 servings)
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 white onion, diced

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 1 red bell pepper, diced

  • ½ tsp salt (or more to taste)

  • ½ tsp chili powder (or more to taste)

  • ½ tsp ground cumin

  • ½ tsp ground coriander

  • 250g canned black beans, not drained

  • ¾ cup tomato sauce (passata)

  • 1 ripe avocado

  • ½ red onion, finely diced

  • ½ tsp garlic powder or 1 small garlic clove, minced

  • 1 tbsp lime juice

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • handful of fresh herbs of choice (cilantro, parsley, chives)

  • lime juice or sour cream

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C. Wash and scrub the sweet potatoes, make a few holes in the skin using a fork and place them in a baking dish.
  2. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until soft inside.
  3. While potatoes are baking, prepare the chili. In a deep skillet, heat up olive oil, add onion and bell pepper and cook for 8-10 minutes, until onions are translucent.
  4. Add minced garlic and spices and cook for one more minute, stirring frequently.
  5. Add black beans and tomato sauce, mix well, put the lid on and let simmer for 10 minutes. Taste the chili and adjust spices if necessary. Simmer for 5 more minutes without the lid.
  6. Prepare the guacamole by mashing all the ingredients with a fork. Taste and adjust salt and pepper.
  7. Cut baked sweet potatoes lengthwise to open them. Fill each sweet potato with chili, top with guacamole and sprinkle with fresh herbs. Optionally serve with a drizzle of lime juice or sour cream.
