[if !supportLists]1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking dish with parchment paper.

[if !supportLists]2. Place the sweet potatoes in the baking dish, and prick each one a couple of times with a fork. Slide the sweet potatoes into the oven and bake until very tender, about 45 minutes (mine took 5 to 10 minutes extra since they were a little bigger than specified).

[if !supportLists]3. In a medium saucepan, combine the basmati rice, black beans, cumin, garlic, olive oil, tomato paste and salt. Pour 1 1/4 cups water into the pot. Cover and bring to a boil over medium heat. Lower the heat to a simmer, and cook until all of the liquid is absorbed, about 40 minutes. Cover and set aside to keep the rice warm.

[if !supportLists]4. Make the rustic salsa: In a medium bowl, combine the bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, red onions, lime juice, cilantro and olive oil. Season the mixture with salt and pepper, and toss to combine. Set aside.

[if !supportLists]5. Place each baked sweet potato in a shallow bowl. Cut along the top of the sweet potato and pull back the skin. Split the sweet potatoes a little bit to make room for the fillings.

[if !supportLists]6. Divide the rice and bean mixture among the sweet potatoes (spillover is fine!). Top each bowl with 1/4th of the rustic salsa. Finish each plate with avocado slices and some shredded cabbage on top.
