Ingredients

  • 2 medium size sweet potatoes, about 2 cups, cut into 1" cubes
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon olive oil, divided
  • 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 teaspoons taco seasoning
  • For the rice:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup long grain white rice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups vegan chicken broth

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. For the potatoes:
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
