Roasted Sweet Potato & Black Bean Tacos with Avocado Cream

These Roasted Sweet Potato and black bean tacos are super easy to make, satisfying, and healthy! Top with a homemade avocado crema for extra flavor!

When we have friends or family over our house, we make tacos. Plus, it’s super easy to satisfy everyone with a flavorful taco like this one here! These roasted sweet potato and black bean tacos are also easy to make and healthy! This recipe is also one of my go-to recipes for a quick weeknight meal!

To limit the number of items stuffed in the tortillas, I blended cilantro with avocado and seasoned it with lime juice, salt, and pepper to create a crema! It’s completely optional, but I highly recommend it! The crema could even be served as a dip with chips for an appetizer!

I started growing sprouts since the ones from the grocery store can be costly and don’t last long. I found HAMAMA online and decided to give them a try. I’ve been using their system for about a year, and it’s super easy to grow their sprouts! It takes about 7-12 days to harvest the seeds, and the sprouts are tasty! Recently, I grew their salad mix and added the sprouts to these tacos. It gave a nice peppery bite, which complimented the savory and spicy sweet potatoes! I hope you all love these tacos!
