Dale Pinnock's Baked Sweet Potato with White Beans, Spinach & Pesto

“This is comfort food in my eyes. There is a wonderful satisfying, addictive quality about it. A simple meal, with masses of fibre and – most importantly of all – masses of flavour.”

• 1 medium-sized sweet potato
• 2 handfuls baby spinach
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 300g cooked butter beans, (from a can is fine, drained and rinsed)
• 2 tablespoons pesto

1 Preheat the oven to 200°C.
2 Pierce the sweet potato using a knife or skewer, then place on a baking tray and bake for an hour. OK, they take a while, but are so worth it!
3 Sauté the spinach in the olive oil, until it wilts. Stir in the beans and pesto. Mix well.
4 Split the baked sweet potato and top with the bean mixture.
