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-style broth
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest

Instructions

  • For the potatoes:
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Drizzle cubed potatoes with 1 teaspoon olive oil and toss to coat.
  • Onto a baking sheet, arrange potatoes in an even layer. Roast 10-15 minutes, or until easily pierced with a fork.
  • For the rice:
  • To a medium saucepan over medium high heat, add olive oil. When oil is hot, add rice and garlic. Cook 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently, until garlic is softened and fragrant.
  • Add vegan chicken broth, lime juice, and sea salt. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 20 minutes, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.
  • Stir in lime zest. Set aside.
  • Putting it all together:
  • Into a large, deep skillet over medium heat, add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. When oil is hot, add roasted potatoes, black beans, and taco seasoning. Mix together to evenly distribute seasoning.
  • Cook, stirring frequently, 5 minutes, or until heated through.
  • Add cooked rice and stir to blend ingredients. Continue cooking another 1-2 minutes to heat rice, if needed. Serve hot.
