Wash and dry all produce. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Cut the sweet potato into ½-inch cubes. In a bowl, toss the cubes with the Cajun seasoning, a drizzle of olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet in the oven for about 25 minutes, tossing halfway through cooking, until golden brown.

Prep the remaining ingredients: Cut the corn kernels of the cob. Halve, peel, and finely dice half the onion. Zest, then halve the lime. Halve the tomatoes. Drain and rinse the beans. Finely chop the parsley.

Add the kidney beans and tomatoes and toss for another 1 minute, until heated though. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the pan from the heat, then stir in the lime zest, lime juice, and parsley.
