I love sweet potatoes. I also love STUFFED sweet potatoes. They are honestly the easiest and quickest meals I can think to make and they’re made with all fresh and healthy ingredients. I already shared this recipe a few months back, but I also wanted to share another stuffed sweet potato that I make all the time. This recipe is a cooked sweet potato topped with black beans, arugula, and a fried egg. If you microwave the sweet potato, the whole meal can be made in under ten minutes. YUP, you heard me: 10 minutes to make a nutritious, healthy, and filling dinner that DOESN’T come from a box or contain processed ingredients. It’s loaded with protein from both the egg and the black beans. I love the combination of egg and sweet potatoes (see this recipe!), and this one doesn’t disappoint. The spicy arugula takes it to a whole other level! I eat this as my main dish and serve it with a side salad, but I do occasionally add a small piece of fish or chicken for my husband. However you decide to make it, you won’t be disappointed!
Active Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 10 minutes
2 medium sweet potatoes
½ of a can of black beans, drained and rinsed
2 handfuls arugula
salt and pepper, to taste
Cook the sweet potatoes in the microwave by poking a few holes in it with a fork and cooking on high for about 7-9 minutes, or until soft.
Meanwhile, spray a skillet with cooking spray and fry two eggs, making sure to leave the yolk soft and runny. Add salt and pepper to taste.
When the potatoes are soft, slice them in half and top each of them with ½ of the black beans, one handful of arugula, and one fried add. Add additional salt and pepper, if desired.
