Baked beans, jacket potato and cheese was one of my favourite school lunches as a child, there’s something so comforting about a jacket potato. This dinner is a healthier alternative and full of amazing nutrients which will also fill you up, I’ve been loving it for dinner and lunch since the weather turned so cold in London.
It’s honestly so simple to make and easy to take to warm up for lunch the next day too. Black beans are high in protein and fibre as well as antioxidants so they have tons of health benefits and I think they are one of the tastiest beans. I hope you enjoy this comforting meal as much as me!
2 sweet potatoes
1 can of black beans (400g)
1 can of chopped tomatoes
a handful of kale
a dozen chestnut mushrooms (halved)
1 glove of garlic (sliced)
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 200C degrees. Pierce the sweet potatoes a few times and place in oven for 45mins-1 hour. When the sweet potatoes have about 15 minutes left, heat the olive oil in a sauce pan and add garlic, mushrooms and kale and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and black beans and heat for further 10 minutes. Take your sweet potatoes out the oven, slice them in half and pour your bean mixture over the top! Season with some salt and pepper if you like.
