    Preheat oven to 180°C | Line a baking tray with parchment paper| Fine grater or Microplane | Saucepan

    When the potatoes are nearly cooked, make your guac | Halve and carefully stone the avocados by tapping the stone firmly with the heel of a knife so that it lodges in the stone, then twist and remove | Spoon the flesh into a mixing bowl and mash with a fork | Peel and finely chop the shallot | Peel and grate the garlic | Rip the stem from the chilli, cut it in half lengthways and remove the seeds, then finely chop | Finely chop the cherry tomatoes | Add the shallots, garlic, chilli and tomatoes to the bowl | Halve the lime and squeeze in the juice | Fold everything together to combine | Taste and season with salt | Pick the leaves from the coriander and discard the stems | Set aside a third of the leaves for garnish then finely chop the rest and add to the bowl | Drain and rinse the black beans and stir them into the guacamole | If the consistency is a little stiff, add a little olive oil to soften it


    Take the tray out of the oven and leave the potatoes to cool for 5 minutes | Carefully slice open the sweet potatoes and gently fluff the flesh with a fork | Spoon half the guacamole into each potato | Garnish with the reserved coriander leaves and serve immediately
