The fixings (per 4 servings):
4 sweet potatoes, scrubbed clean leaving skin on
1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
Cilantro for garnish
Yoso coconut yogurt
Sriracha or hot sauce of your choosing
Sea salt and pepper
1. Preheat oven to 350. Bake potatoes whole, poke each a few times with a fork. Bake for 1 hour.
2. When potatoes almost done, mash avocado with a fork and mix with fresh squeezed lime and sea salt and pepper to make a basic guacamole.
3. When soft to poke with a fork, potatoes are ready. Slice each down the middle making a pocket for all the fixings.
4. Layer each with guac mixture, small handful of arugula, 1/4 cup black beans, and top with a dollop of coconut yogurt, cilantro and drizzle with sriracha or hot sauce.
*Option to sprinkle with chilli flakes, nutritional yeast for cheesy flavour, or real cheddar for a non-vegan/dairy dish. And squeeze extra lime over top.
