mash the avocado with the lime juice in a small bowl, then stir in the chilli, tomatoes, coriander and onion.
the potatoes in half and top with the beans and guacamole. Serve with the lime wedges for squeezing over.
For this I created a smoky stew packed with pulses and extra vegetables. Let the slow cooker do its work and serve with crusty bread and lots of real butter (remember to get soya butter for your vegan friends)
Soft sweetpotatoes and tasty red kidneybeans are baked with lime juice, topped with a caramalised and crisp layer of red onions and mixed peppers, flavoured with a gentle hint of chilli and smoked paprika for a taste of late summer
With a potato masher, mash until the beans are about half crushed (see above). Its been a few good months now, since I made a veggie burger from scratch, so when I picked up some sweetpotatoes it was with veggie burgers in mind
I always play with colourful and fresh ingredients and make variations, this time used Black Beans and SweetPotato, great combination to work with and there were four happy tummies once we devour with Cumin Mango salsa and Guacamole
Try layering with that guacamole in a serving dish to serve at parties. They offer sweetness and along with the beans a soft toothsome texture, which is balanced by the crunchy, fresh red pepper and cucumber and the smoky essence in the spices added
