 1 medium sweet potato

 Juice of a quarter of a lemon
 Juice of half a lime
 Olive oil
 Lemon and lime peel zest

Have all your ingredients at hand: Green beans, sweet potato, Iberian ham, olive oil, paprika, lime and lemon.


We start by cutting the green beans. We prefer them with a small cut so that they cook quickly and are delicious, but you can do it with the cut that you like the most.

When you have them cut, prepare water in a pot and as soon as it boils, put the beans in it.

Leave them over medium heat for about 5 or 6 minutes.


Start preparing the vinaigrette that will accompany this dish. We will make it from olive oil, paprika, lime juice and lime and lemon zest.


Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into small cubes, dip them in oil and salt them. los.


Sauté them in a frying pan over high heat until golden brown. A trick to make them softer is to add a splash of water, cover and let them finish cooking for a couple of minutes.


When ready, mix the well-drained beans and the hot sweet potato and add the ham on top, it will get the temperature we are looking for. Finish the dish with a touch of the vinaigrette we have prepared.
