Yield: 4 servings 1x

Sheet pan sweet potatoes and black bean bowls is an easy meal that’s sure to become a favorite!

1 cup brown rice (uncooked)
3 cups sweet potatoes, chopped into 1” pieces
½ red onion, chopped into 1” pieces
1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained, rinsed and towel-dried
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp salt
Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Optional Toppings:
Plant based sour cream, regular sour cream or Greek yogurt
Pickled jalapenos
Pickled red onions
Hot sauce
Lime wedge

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 
Cook the rice according to package directions
Combine the sweet potato, red onion, black beans, olive oil and spices in a large mixing bowl. Gently toss together until evenly coated.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, stirring once halfway through.

To serve: place the roasted sweet potatoes and beans over a bed of brown rice. Top with any of the optional toppings. Enjoy!

Use parboiled rice such as minute rice when you are in a time crunch.

Remember to dry the black beans using a kitchen towel. This helps them get crispy in the oven.

This recipe is also delicious served as tacos or a burrito!
