Sweet Potato Bean Mash

sweet potato bean mash

You've seen this in bout day breakfasts plated with eggs or fried into cakes, and actually what this is really amazing in is oatmeal with poached eggs, but I don't have legumes or starchy vegetables for breakfast much anymore, so this has been serving as spacefood. Did I ever say what spacefood is? It's something really easy and digestible to eat for dinner before workouts, or whatever meal you eat before workouts. For dinner I usually eat a scoop of this with a fried egg, or a little bit of carne asada or carnitas.

Whenever you're in the kitchen for something else, heat the oven to 400 and throw in a couple sweet potatoes and bake for about an hour until they're very tender.

Rinse and drain a can of beans and mash them with a potato masher, then mash the sweet potatoes into the beans.
