Mexican-Style Sweet Potatoes [Vegan, Grain-Free]


For the Potatoes:

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked kidney beans
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 1/2 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/2 a red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 stalks of celery, diced
  • Cracked salt and pepper

Optional Toppings:


  1. Preheat oven to 430°F.
  2. Pierce each potato a few times with a fork. Place on an pan lined with parchment paper and roast for an hour or an hour and a half until you can easily pierce the skin with a knife and the inside is soft.
  3. While the potatoes cook, warm the coconut oil in a medium sized sauté pan. Add the spring onions and cook until they soften. Add the spices and tomato concentrate and cook for another minute or two.
  4. Next stir in the beans and pepper, season with salt and pepper and mix everything well to combine the flavors.
  5. When the potatoes have cooled slightly, slice each potato down the center, almost through to the bottom. Carefully open and spoon in the bean mixture.
  6. Top with your favorite toppings.
