Sweet Potato/Black Bean Burrito

This is my top 5 favourite thing ever!!!
5 cups of Sweet Potatoes
2 cans of Black Beans
1/2 cup of chopped Coriander
Juice of One Lemon
8-10 8" tortillas
3-4 cups of minced Onions
1 tsp of Ground Coriander
1 tsp of Ground Cumin
Salt - just for you!
Vegan Sour Cream

Ok, so peel & dice up your sweet potatoes & cook them until they are soft.  Once drained, mash the sweet potato, black beans, fresh coriander & lemon juice together in a large bowl.  Set this aside.
Turn your oven on to 350C now, must not waste hydro!
In a frying pan, cook the onions with the ground coriander & cumin until the onions are soft.  Once cooked, add the onion mixture into the mashed sweet potato mixture.  Have a taste now & add salt until it tastes how you personally like it.  Because shouldn't we all have exactly what we want??
Get out your tortillas & add 1/3 or so cup of mixture to the centre and roll it up!  This is something that only gets better with practice.  Lay your rolled up burritos onto an oiled pan with the seam side down.  Once you have all your burritos finished cover the entire pan/tray/cookie sheet/ with aluminum foil.  Put them into the oven for 30 minutes.  I prefer to turn them after 20 minutes so that there is a nice toasty tortilla on both sides.  When finished cooking, add some yummy salsa & vegan sour cream to the top & enjoy. 
*A recent mutation took place where I had some leftover filling & leftover brown rice, so I mixed it up & fried it!  May work well in the burritos with the rice too!
