  • 2 large essential Waitrose sweet potatoes
  • 1 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • 1 essential Waitrose red onion, sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp sweet smoked paprika
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp essential Waitrose Tomato Puree
  • 400g can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • handful essential Waitrose grated cheddar
  • handful mint leaves, shredded


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. Pierce the potatoes all over with a fork, place on a parchment-lined baking tray and roast for 1 hour or until tender; set aside to cool for 10 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and fry for 5 minutes until soft, then add the garlic, spices and tomato puree; cook for 1 minute more. Tip in the beans, add 4-5 tbsp water and season. Fry for 2-3 minutes, until warmed through (add a splash more water if it looks dry).

  3. Split open the potatoes and pile in the beans, cheese and mint to serve. Greek yogurt or guacamole make a good addition, too.
