Stuffed Sweet Potato with Hummus Dressing

Stuffed baked sweet potato with hummus dressing topped with black beans - healthy recipes

This stuffed sweet potato with black beans, kale, and hummus dressing is a hearty yet simple 5-ingredient lunch for one.


  • 1 large sweet potato, scrubbed
  • ¾ cup chopped kale
  • 1 cup canned black beans, rinsed
  • ¼ cup hummus
  • 2 tablespoons water


  • Prick sweet potatoes all over with a fork. Microwave on High for 7 to 10 minutes, or until thoroughly cooked. 
  • Meanwhile, wash kale and drain, allowing water to cling to the leaves. Put it in a medium saucepan; cover and cook over medium-high heat, stirring once or twice until wilted. Add beans; add a tablespoon or two of water if the pot is dry. Continue cooking, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is steaming hot, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Split the sweet potatoes open and top them with the kale and bean mixture. Combine hummus and 2 tablespoons of water in a small dish. Add additional water as needed to reach the desired consistency. Drizzle the hummus dressing over the stuffed sweet potatoes.
