Make It Like So
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Scrub the sweet potatoes and prick them in a few places with a fork.
  3. Place them on a baking sheet and bake until soft all the way through, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  4. While sweet potato is baking, heat olive oil on a medium pan and add the onion and garlic. Cook until soft.
  5. Add the beans and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Remove from heat and stir in your greens (the heat will wilt them). Add your lemon juice, red pepper flakes and sea salt to taste.
  7. Remove sweet potatoes from oven. To serve, slice each sweet potato through the middle, top with beans + greens mix, drizzle with dressing and add any of your extras.
