We have made a conscious effort to reduce our meat consumption recently. And for us that has meant a boost in our bean intake … Good thing we love beans!
This recipe hits all the right marks for us. It is delicious, nutritious, budget friendly, fast and easy to make, fits all of our allergies and it is very filling and satisfying… Even for the biggest carnivore 😉
It is even one of those meals, made from regular pantry staples, that you can throw together in the morning and the flavors get even better when you reheat it in the evening. Wins all ’round!
- 2 x 400g tin black beans, drained and rinsed
- 350-400g gold sweet potato, small dice
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- medium brown onion, diced
- 2 tsp minced garlic
- 1 tsp minced chilli
- 1 rounded tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 2 cups (500g) pasata
- 1 cup hot veggie stock
Heat olive oil in a large, heavy based pan.
Add in onion and fry until golden.
Add in the garlic and chilli and fry for a further minutes before adding in dry spices.
Fry for about 2 mins, mixing well, before adding in the sweet potato. Mix well to cover in spice mix and fry for a couple of minutes.
Add black beans, pasata and stock, mix well and bring to a simmer.
Simmer gently for about 15 minutes.
We serve this one over either brown rice or roasted cauliflower and top it with slices of ripe avocado, drizzled with a squeeze of lime juice. Yum!
