Ingredients (4 servings)

  • 1 sweet potato, diced approximately 1 cm (3/8 in)
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp. chili seasoning
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 can of 540 ml black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt or light sour cream
  • 4 large tortillas
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 lime, cut into quarters
  • Hot oil or Tabasco (optional)



  1. Preheat the oven to (230°C) 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, put the diced sweet potato, then pour 15 ml (1 tbsp) of oil and the maple syrup. Mix well.
  3. Spread the mixture on the baking sheet, then season with salt and pepper. Bake for 10 minutes. Stir with a spatula. Continue cooking under at broil for 2 minutes (watching carefully!) Or until the potatoes are golden.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté onion, cumin and chili seasoning for 1 minute in 1 tbsp (15 ml) oil. Add oregano, black beans, water and tomatoes. Continue cooking for 2 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.
  5. Spread 15 g (1 tbsp.) Plain yogurt (or sour cream) in the center of a tortilla. Add a quarter of the black bean mixture, then a quarter of the sweet potatoes. Garnish with avocado and coriander slices. Drizzle with lime wedge and hot oil, if desired.
  6. Close each burrito by folding the two ends of the tortilla over the filling, then rolling to form a closed liner.
