Sweet potatoes with carrots and kidney beans

Sweet potatoes with carrots and kidney beans

Introduction

very simple to prepare and surprisingly tasty, preparation time estimated high to be the safe side. It consists almost entirely of cutting up the veggies. very simple to prepare and surprisingly tasty, preparation time estimated high to be the safe side.

Ingredients

    Ingredients:

    1 - 2 tsp olive oil
    1 1/2 cup finely chopped sweet potatoes (or: 200 g)
    1 cup finely chopped carrots (or: 150 g)
    1/2 cup cooked/canned kidney beans (or: 150 g)
    Seasonings according to taste





Directions

- heat oil in a smallish to medium pan

- add carrots and stir-fry for one or two minutes

- add sweet potatoes, stir-fry for another 3 minutes

- add kidney beans and some water, lower the heat and simmer until the beans are heated through and the veggies cooked to your taste.

Season to your taste. I usually add about /2 tsp of salt or soy sauce.

I usually eat this as a quick and tasty lunch ( = 1 serving). My guess is that as a side dish it makes 2 - 3 servings.


*~* Variations *~*

Obviously, one can vary the amount of ingredients though I like this best if sweet potatoes remain the main ingredients.

You can use less oil and add water sooner which means the veggies are cooked rather than fried.

I chop the potato and carrots up very finely so they don't take long to cook. Just dicing them will probably make the preparation time shorter.

I'd appreciate any infos on your experiences or changes - how long it took you to prepare this, what changes you made, what spices you used.

  • It is delicious! I am glad to have something to do with the many cans of carrots, sweet potatoes and beans that I have. I chopped the beans because I don't like beans, but, I eat them for the fiber. I mix them in with other things. - 8/8/11
