Black Bean & Sweet Potato Burritos

Updated: Dec 30, 2021

Just perfect for a meal prep session, these delicious vegetarian wraps can be frozen and heated up straight from the freezer! I promise that you're going to love them. So, even if meal prep isn't your thing, you're going to want to make double!


  • 2 1/2 Sweet Potato (large, peeled and sliced)

  • 2 1/2 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1 Small Yellow Onion (diced)

  • 2 Garlic Cloves (minced)

  • 260g Black Beans (ready cooked)

  • 80g Frozen Corn

  • 1/2 Green Pepper (diced)

  • 100mls Water

  • 4 1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard

  • 1/2 tsp Cumin

  • 3 1/2 tsp Tamari

  • Sea Salt (or more to taste)

  • 4 Whole Wheat Tortilla (11 inches)


  • Steam sweet potatoes for 7 minutes, or until tender. Mash with a potato masher.

  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium skillet and sauté the onion, green pepper and garlic until soft. Set aside.

  • In a bowl, add black beans and mash with a potato masher. Mix in the sautéed onion and garlic, corn, water, mustard, cumin and tamari until thoroughly combined. Season with salt as needed.

  • Divide the mashed sweet potato and black bean mixture evenly between the tortillas and fold into burritos.

  • If eating immediately, heat the burritos in the oven at 180ºC for 10-12 minutes or until warmed through.

  • Wrap the remaining burritos in foil and freeze in a freezer-safe bag.

To Re-heat:

  • Heat in the oven at 180ºC for 30 minutes from frozen (or less if already defrosted), then unwrap and return to the oven for another 10-15 minutes for a crispy wrap (optional).

  • Remove foil from defrosted burritos and microwave for 1-2 minutes (times will vary depending on the power of your microwave).

Delicious topped Greek yogurt, sour cream, feta cheese, tomatoes, avocado and/or salsa and served with a crispy green salad.
