Black Bean and Sweet Potato Burrito

Here is a great healthy alternative to the classic burrito, it is a great make-ahead meal for on the go lunches!
4 tortillas (can be flour or gluten free)
1 large sweet potato
1 TBSP coconut oil
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp smoked paprika
¼ tsp sea salt
Fresh ground black pepper
2 cups canned black beans, rinsed well
¼ cup chopped green onion
1 cup crumbled goat cheese
½ cup fresh cilantro

Peel and cut sweet potatoes into 1” cubes, toss in coconut oil and season with the cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. Roast at 375°F for 25-30 minutes or until the cubes start to brown. Rinse black beans very well, mash with a fork. Fill each tortilla with some of the potatoes, some of the beans, green onion, goat cheese and cilantro as desired. If you prefer spicy you can also add some of your favorite hot sauce.   If desired serve with plain Greek yogurt for dipping.   For a Vegan option you can omit the goat cheese and increase the amount of avocado and serve with salsa.   If you are in too much of a hurry to roast your own sweet potatoes you can use mashed sweet potato that you have microwaved or baked… or even from a can.
