Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes


  • 4 small sweet potatoes


  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large brown onion, finely sliced
  • 1 clove garlic , minced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 x 400 g can black beans, drained


  • 1 cup sweet cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 small red onion, diced
  • Juice of 1 fresh lime
  • Sea salt and black pepper


  • 2 avocados, mashed
  • 1/4 red onion, finely chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Pinch good quality salt
  • Fresh coriander to serve
  • Fresh red chilli, sliced to serve


  • Pre-heat fan-forced oven to 180’C. 
  • Wash and pat dry sweet potatoes. Wrap each sweet potato in foil and place on a baking tray. Bake in oven for approx. 1 hour or until each is soft in the centre. 
  • Meanwhile, prepare filling and toppings. 
  • To make filling, heat olive oil in frying pan and add onions. Sauté over low-medium heat for 5-8 minutes or until onions are soft and fragrant. Add garlic and stir until the onions caramelise. 
  • Stir through cumin, paprika, oregano, coriander and black beans. 
  • Season with salt and pepper. Set aside. 
  • To make guacamole topping, in a mixing bowl combine mashed avocado with red onion, lime juice, cumin and salt. Adjust seasoning to liking. 
  • Once sweet potatoes are cooked through and cool enough to handle, remove foil and cut lengthways to create an opening, being carefully not to cut the whole way through. 
  • Spoon filling into each sweet potato and top with salsa and avocado toppings. 
  • Garnish with fresh coriander and chilli. 



To add animal protein add shredded or minced cooked chicken, beef, pork or lamb to the caramelised onions to warm through.
