good carbs

Here’s my quick recipe for a fully loaded (vegetarian version) potato:

Potatoes: I washed a couple of potatoes, poked holes in them with a fork, put them in a medium bowl half filled with water, and then used the “Baked Potato” function on my microwave.

Topping: In a fry pan, I sauteed a chopped onion in some olive oil and then added a can of drained (and rinsed) black beans along with a can of drained “Mexican style” tomatoes (diced tomatoes with peppers mixed in).  Other veggies like corn can be a nice addition.  As for seasoning, it’s your choice.  I happened to go with Weber’s New Orleans blend.

Once everything was cooked, I added some plain yogurt on top and ended up with this:

Not the most prettiest of dishes, but yummy enough to finish it off:

Enjoy! 🙂

  1. Ever tried this on a sweet potato? I hear they are better for you – they don’t turn onto sugar as quickly
