Sweet Potato Burrito Bowl Recipe

Cut some calories by omitting the Cheddar and sour cream. Or, make it a meaty meal by adding some leftover chicken towards the end. If you want to make it a bit more substantial, roll it all up into a wrap. 

Serves: 1
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1½ tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small sweet potato, peeled and chopped
  • 20g rice
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • ¼ x 400g tin of black or kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • ½ a green pepper, deseeded and chopped
  • 3 tbsp sweetcorn
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Pinch of chilli powder
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • 40ml vegetable stock
  • Juice of ½ a lime
  • Handful of Cheddar, grated

To serve:

  • Fresh coriander, chopped
  • Guacamole

Instructions

  • Heat half a tablespoon of oil in a large pan over a medium-high heat and cook the sweet potato chunks for 8-10 minutes or until just tender.
  • Add another tablespoon of oil and the rice. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Add the tomatoes, black beans, sweetcorn, garlic, chili powder, cumin and vegetable stock, stirring to combine. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low.
  • Cover the pan with a lid and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed and the rice is cooked.
  • Remove the lid and stir in the lime juice. Top with the grated Cheddar, then cover for 1-2 minutes until the cheese melts.
  • Top the burrito bowl with chopped coriander and some guacamole, if desired.
