Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 4 small sweet potatoes
  • ½ red onion
  • 1 chipotle chilli
  • 1 red chilli
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • ¼ tsp sweet paprika
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • ½ cup chopped tin tomatoes
  • ½ cup cooked black beans
  • 1 cob organic corn
  • 175g firm organic tofu
  • Pink lake sea salt

To serve

  • Handful of coriander
  • 4 tbsp natural yoghurt


Preheat your oven to 180ºC. Prick the sweet potatoes with a fork, season with a pinch of pink lake sea salt and individually wrap each potato in foil. Place the sweet potatoes in the preheated oven for around 20 minutes until soft to touch.

While the potatoes are in the oven, place the red onion, chillis, garlic, tomato paste, spices and tinned tomatoes into a processor. Blitz until smooth. 

In a small saucepan, place the black beans and corn (removed from cob). Crumble in the tofu and add in the salsa made in the processor. Let simmer over a low heat for 15 to 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. 

Remove sweet potatoes from the oven and cut each potato open. Gently squeeze open the jackets and place some tofu/black bean filling in each potato. If taking for lunch, place into a container and enjoy later!  

Serve with coriander and yoghurt.
