These roasted white bean and sweet potato tacos are the perfect, weeknight dinner. Not only can you meal prep the cajun white beans and the roasted sweet potatoes ahead of time for an easy to throw together meal, these tacos are also packed full of fiber, protein, and vitamins and will leave you feeling full and satisfied!




3 cups roasted sweet potatoes or 1 medium sweet potatoes (approximately 3 cups)

1 ½ cups roasted cajun white beans or 1 x 19 oz can white kidney beans, drained, rinsed and patted dry

Pickled red onion, homemade or store bought


Feta or cotija cheese

Fresh cilantro (optional

Hot sauce (optional)

Lime wedges (optional)


⅓ cup plain Greek yogurt (or cashew cream or vegan Greek yogurt)

Juice of ½ lime

1 tbsp warm water

1 clove garlic, grated or finely minced

Pinch of salt


  1. If not already prepped, make the sweet potatoes and cajun white beans: Preheat the oven to 425 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Toss the sweet potatoes and beans in oil, cajun seasoning, garlic, salt and pepper.  Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, flipping and swapping racks halfway. Sweet potatoes are finished when golden brown around the edges and fork tender. Beans ar ready when golden and crisp on the outside.

  2. If not already prepped or if not using store bought, make the pickled red onion (recipe here).

  3. If not already prepped, make the lime crema. To make the lime crema: Whisk together the Greek yogurt, lime juice, warm water, garlic and salt until well combined. Adjust to taste with more lime or salt. Set aside.

  4. If already prepped, reheat the sweet potatoes and cajun white beans: In a large skillet, heat 1-2 teaspoons of avocado oil over medium heat. Add in the white beans and the yams and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Alternatively, add the sweet potatoes and beans to a microwave safe dish and heat in the microwave in 30 second increments, until heated through, about 1-2 minutes.

  5. Make the tacos: Warm the tortillas in the oven or microwave and top with yam and bean mixture, pickled onion, cheese and cilantro. Drizzle with the lime crema and if using,  hot sauce and a squeeze of lime.  Enjoy!
