Main Ingredients

1 medium sweet potatoes (about lbs. ), peeled and cut into-inch chunks

1 medium red onion, chopped into-inch pieces

1/3 c. olive oil

1 small clove garlic, peeled

kosher salt

fresh-ground black pepper

1/2 jalapeño pepper (remove seeds for mild or add seeds to make it hot)

2 juice of limes

15 ( oz. ) can black beans, drained and rinsed

1 red or yellow bell pepper, seeded and finely diced

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro


1Heat oven to 400 degrees. Put sweet potatoes and onions on a large baking sheet lined with tin foil and drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil. Toss to coat and spread out in a single layer. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast, turning occasionally, until potatoes begin to brown on corners and are just tender inside, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from oven; keep on pan until ready to mix with dressing.

2Mince garlic in mini food processor, then add jalapeño, lime juice, remaining olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Process until blended. Toss warm vegetables in a large bowl with dressing and cilantro. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Serve warm or at room temperature, or refrigerate for up to 2 days.
