Method

Preheat oven to 400° F. Pierce potatoes with a fork several times and bake for about one hour or until tender.
While potatoes are baking, blend together the zesty tahini dressing. Set aside.
Sauté onion, mushrooms and peppers in a skillet in coconut oil until soft, about 3 minutes or so. Add in spinach and cook until just wilted. Remove from heat.
Remove potatoes from oven, cut open sweet potatoes, mashed each side with a fork and sprinkle on a little sea salt and pepper to season.
Load on the toppings: start with the sautéed onion and spinach mixture, then add black beans, tomatoes, avocado, spring onion and cilantro. Drizzle desired amount of zesty tahini dressing dressing over each potato. Serve immediately.
