Take away your the quark garnish and this is a completely vegan recipe. I borrowed elements from Mike’s Sweet Potato recipe for the Ultimate Baked Potato Battle and gave it a fusion food reimagining of the Student Classic of Jacket and Beans. Ave it.


  • 2 Handfuls Spinach
  • ½ Pack Creamed Coconut
  • 1 Spring Onion (Diced)
  • 1 tsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 Can Butter Beans
  • 1 tsp Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 5 Medium Sized Sweet Potaotes
  • 1 Can Chickpeas/ Garbanzo Beans
  • 1 tsp Curry Paste

Step 1


Cover the outside of your potato skins with oil, salt and a little pepper. Pre-heat an oven to 200 degrees Celsius and while that’s warming; cover your sweet potatoes in tinfoil. Place into oven and bake for an hour and 15 minutes.

Refry Beans!

Step 2

Refry Beans!

These beans to go on the jacket are meant to be refried and curied. So add both cans of Beans to pan over a high heat with a shot of oil, your Spring Onion, your Curry Paste, Creamed Coconut, Vinegar and Soy. Season with Pepper and fry off. Add a little Water to really help those beans break down before adding your Spinach in at the last possible moment to wilt down.


Step 3


Split your potatoes open, fork the insides to break up, before seasoning with Salt, Pepper and Oil before putting under a hot grill/ broiler to get the insides to crisp slightly.


Step 4


Serve your Potato with a good portion of your Beans, garnished with Spring Onion, and Quark it you so desire. This recipe was really simple. All it took was a little time to wait for the Sweet Potato to cook. I meal prepped these for the whole week and they kept the entire time. 10/10. Would recommend as a Vegan Lunch. Give it a go and let me know how you get on.
