Sweet Potatoes Stuffed with Spinach and Pinto and Navy Beans

Baked Sweet Potato

Heat the oven to 400ºF.
Wash/scrub and pierce the sweet potatoes with a fork several times.
Take each and wrap it in aluminum foil and place in a foil lined baking sheet and bake for 1-1½ hours or until soft.
Remove, unwrap and allow to cool in order to handle.

While you’re baking the sweet potatoes, you need to prepare the filling.


In a large frying pan, add and heat 2 Tbps olive oil over medium heat.
Cook the garlic by stirring it for 2 minutes until lightly colored.
Add the spinach (defrosted and excess water removed) and all the beans.
Spice with nutmeg, salt, and pepper to taste.
Mix and stir until well heated.

Sesame Tahini Sauce

Add warm water bit by bit, stirring until it becomes a pourable sauce.
Set aside to drizzle over dish once done.

How to finish off and stuff your Sweet Potatoes

Sweet Potatoes Stuffed with Spinach and Beans with Tahini

Cut it open down the middle (lengthwise) and slightly fluff the inside flesh with a fork.
Divide the filling and cut up sun-dried tomatoes evenly over the sweet potatoes.
If you have extra, just add it to the size of your plate to be enjoyed on its own.
Now drizzle with tahini sauce and if desired some additional extra virgin olive oil over the sweet potatoes.
