Serves: 2

Ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoons (10ml) oil
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 jalapeno, minced and seeds removed
  • 3 teaspoons (15g) ground cumin

  • ¾ cup (130g) corn kernels
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges

  1. Heat the oil in a non-stick fry pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes or until soft and translucent, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add the sweet potato and cook for 8-10 minutes or until it starts to colour, stirring occasionally.
  3. Stir in the garlic, jalapeno, cumin and water. Simmer until the water is absorbed, stirring occasionally.
