I’m all for treating yourself to a long drawn out home made dish. But sometimes ya need some quick nutrition, while still feeding yourself solid, wholesome ingredients. Below is one of my very favorite recipes. I’ve listed the yield here for 2, but I make this dish for 1 all the time (all the single ladies, yeaah!). Enjoy!
2 sweet potatoes
1 can black beans (drained, rinsed)
1 cup Kale, or green of your choosing
1/2 cup of cheese (cheddar, monterey jack, or any other type)
1/2 Tablespoon olive oil
1. Using a fork, poke holes all over sweet potatoes, and microwave for about 5-6 minutes each.
2. Meanwhile, place skillet over medium-high heat, and add olive oil—once hot, add beans and kale. Cook until kale wilts. Once sweet potatoes are done cooking, cut in half length-wise, and top each with half of bean mixture.
3. Top with 1/4 cup cheese each, and salsa as desired.
I wanted to keep the ingredients list around 5-6 for this post, but remember that you can always beef it up (so to speak) with extra veggies! Get creative, or use whatever you have on hand this week. Below is an example. Run with it!
Kale, mushrooms, and orange bell peppers
