Method

  1. Drizzle olive oil on sweet potatoes and rub oil all over to ensure each sweet potato has a light coating. Poke sweet potato with a fork and add to a microwave-safe dish.
  2. Microwave sweet potatoes for 5 minutes. Flip the sweet potatoes over and microwave for another 5 minutes. Repeat until sweet potatoes are soft (1-2 times).
  3. In a large bowl, combine corn, black beans, red onion, cilantro, grape tomatoes, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, salt, olive oil, and lime juice. Mix to combine. 
  4. Cut a slit down the middle of each sweet potato and gently mash the inside of the potato with a fork to create room for the black bean mixture. Stuff an equal amount of the mixture into each sweet potato. 
  5. Make the avocado crema by adding vegan sour cream, Califia Farms Unsweetened Almond Beverage, garlic, avocados, cilantro, salt, and red pepper flakes to a food processor and pulse until smooth.
  6. Drizzle crema on top of sweet potatoes and garnish with additional cilantro. Enjoy!
