Ha, I tricked you.
You thought you were going to scroll down this post and see a giant casserole dish full of mashed up sweet potatoes, butter pools and marshmallow clouds.
Ha, you were wrong. I tricked you.
But hey, don’t feel too misled because this kind of sweet potato pie is way better than the other kind your Aunt Gerddy makes at Thanksgiving.
This sweet potato pie is simple, fresh, healthy and packed with flavor and nutrients. And in my opinion, it’s a perfectly acceptable option for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Three meal options, for the win. Eyyyyoohhhh!
You see all you do is bake a sweet potato in the oven or micro, sprinkle on some cinnamon, add a spoonful of black beans, salsa, sour cream [or greek yogurt], and then top it off with fresh cilantro and a little more cinnamon.
Sound weird? It’s not. Just try it. You will love it. It even led me to twittilate this the other day as I was eating it.
It was pure joy. My only regret is that I waited so long to try this combo. Why didn’t anyone tell me black beans + sweet potato = magic?!
What’s your favorite way to eat a sweet potato?
What are your plans for the weekend?!
John and I have been traveling abroad in the Kansas plains this week and plan to have a lay low type of weekend to recoup for the week ahead. Pizza Sunday, a Dog the Bounty Hunter marathon, and lots of photo recaps of our adventures are sure to ensue.
