Black Bean and Sweet Potato Burritos
Different and delicious
2 medium sweet potatoes (approx. 4 cups), diced
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoons olive oil
One 19-oz (540-ml) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup vegetable stock
2 garlic cloves, minced
1-1/2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground mustard
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 large flour tortillas
1/4 cup salsa
1 cup vegan "cheese," grated (optional)
In a large pot of salted water, boil the sweet potatoes.
While the sweet potatoes are cooking, in a medium saucepan on medium heat, sauté the onions in oil until translucent. Add the black beans, stock, garlic, chili powder, mustard, cumin and salt. Simmer, uncovered, over medium-high heat for 15 minutes.
Drain the water from the sweet potatoes; return the sweet potatoes to the pot and mash with a potato masher. Set aside. Once the bean mixture is done, mash with potato masher and set aside.
Lay 4 tortilla shells on the counter. Spread out onto each tortilla: 1 tablespoon salsa, 1/4 of the sweet potato, 1/4 of the beans, and 1/4 of the "cheese." Roll up each burrito and serve as is, or bake in the oven until hot.
