Baked sweet potatoes and beans

Prep: 10 mins Cook: 25 mins
Skill level: Easy
Servings: Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 4 small sweet potatoes
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika, plus extra to serve
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • splash of Worcestershire sauce (Lancashire sauce is a veggie option)
  • 2 x 400g cans mixed beans in water, drained

Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Pierce the sweet potatoes a few times with a fork, then cook them in the microwave on High for 8 mins or until soft. Rub with 1 tsp of the paprika, 1 tsp of the oil and some seasoning. Transfer to a baking tray, put in the oven and cook for 10-15 mins until crispy.

Add the garlic, sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and the remaining paprika, and cook for a further 1-2 mins until sticky. Tip in the beans, tomatoes and a splash of water, and simmer until the sweet potatoes are ready.
  3. Serve the sweet potatoes with the beans on top, a dollop of soured cream and a pinch of paprika, if you like.
