Baked Sweet Potato Jackets

These oven-baked sweet potato jackets are great for a quick and easy snack, lunch, or dinner. You can eat them plain but I highly recommend trying one of my delicious bean fillings - black bean chili or butter beans and cherry tomatoes!

    Baked sweet potato jackets

      Arrange the sweet potatoes on a baking tray and drizzle a little olive oil over them. Sprinkle with a little sea salt.
    • Bake in the oven for 40-50 minutes or until they are tender and yield slightly when you press down with your finger.

    Cannellini beans and cherry tomatoes

    • In a frying pan over medium heat fry the cherry tomatoes in a little bit of olive oil until they start to soften.
    • Stir in the drained beans and the chopped parsley. Add a little sweet paprika and use it to top the sweet potato jackets.

      • Filled your sweet potato jackets with my vegan black bean chili.
      • Pierce your sweet potatoes with a fork before baking to speed up the cooking time.
