Black Bean and Sweet Potato Jambalaya

Thought you all might like another sweet potato recipe since 'tis the season for cheap ones!

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large sweet potato peeled and cubed (about 2 1/2 cups)
2 cloves garlic, minced
14 oz. veggie broth
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
3/4 cup white rice (I know... "Boo! Hiss!" right? But it can't be helped, and it's so yummy!)
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed

sliced green onions
chopped grape or cherry tomatoes

Heat oil in skillet. Cook Sweet Potato and Garlic until it starts to brown (2-3 min). Stir in broth, sauce, and pepper. Stir in rice. Boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 min. Stir in beans. Cover and simmer an additional 8-10 min. Top with onions and tomatoes when serving.

  1. FYI - if you have the desire to make this... We made it tonight with brown rice instead of white. I cooked all the ingredients separately pretty much and then just tossed them together. I cooked the rice with veg broth, the spices/ w sauce etc. Then I cooked the s potatoes in a bit of veggie broth. I liked it a lot better actually. Then all of the ingredients got cooked the right amount (no mushy sweet potatoes or rice!)... and we were able to do brown rice.

    Hope you are all well. Shay, you've been on my mind. Hope you are good!
