What to do
- Preheat the oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment. Place the potatoes halves on the sheet tray and spray with cooking oil spray to coat both sides. Season with salt and set flesh side down.
- Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until tender.
Meanwhile, make the tahini sauce:
- Stir together the tahini, lime juice, olive oil, and maple syrup. Add the salt and spices and taste to adjust seasonings. Add the water 1 tablespoon at a time to adjust for consistency and set aside.
- To serve, heat the beans in a small sauce pot over low heat and season with salt and pepper. Place the baked sweet potatoes on plates or one large platter. Top with the tahini sauce, black beans, smoky beets, tomatoes, green onions, chilis, and cilantro. Sprinkle over crumbled cheese, squeeze with lime, and enjoy!
