Serves 1 | High Protein | High in Iron
1 cup of your favourite cooked beans
1 medium sweet potato
½ red onion
1 red pepper
Large handful cherry tomatoes
chipotle chilli powder
1/2 cup sweetcorn
1 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 avocado, diced
½ lemon or lime
Optional: Tortilla chips to serve
1. Dice your sweet potato, leaving the skin on. Transfer to a steamer and steam for 10 – 15 minutes, until tender.
2. Meanwhile, heat a splash of water in a frying pan over a medium heat. Dice the red onion, pepper and tomatoes and add to the pan. Fry for at least 5 minutes, until soft.
3. Add a splash of tamari to the pan along with the garlic, paprika, coriander, cumin and chilli powders. Pour in the steamed sweet potato, cooked beans and sweetcorn and continue to fry for a further 3 – 4 minutes to allow the flavours to infuse together.
4. Transfer the cooked quinoa to a bowl. Pour the contents of the pan over the quinoa to allow it to soak up the flavour. Add the diced avocado, a pinch of salt and a squeeze of lemon or lime. Serve with tortilla chips for an extra crunch!
