Great and easy recipe for kids this half term
Serves 6 LUNCH/SIDE DISH (add a salad for LUNCH)
A fresh salad would make a nice accompaniment to this dish.
1 pound sweet potatoes or yams cut into small cubes (you’ll steam these)
1 medium sized onion
2 celery stalks, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1-2 tablespoons water
1lb cooked beans (I recommend kidney for this, but any bean would be fine)
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1 sprig fresh rosemary, minced or 12 fresh basil leaves, chopped
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 cayenne powder or 1 teaspoon chilli powder
salt to taste
8 slices rye bread
- Steam the sweet potatoes/yams for about 17 minutes, or until tender. Place in refrigerator in a small bowl and refrigerate until the remainder of the dish is ready.
- In a medium saucepan, sauté onions, celery, and garlic in the water until onions are translucent.
- In a food processor, combine the sautéed veggies, sweet potatoes, and everything else except the bread. Process together until smooth. (If you don’t have a food processor, a blender will work fine-you might have to add a bit of water though to get it all to blend. Or if no blender, just mash it all together with your favorite mashing device. The smoother the better, but a few larger pieces are OK.Total time: 30 mins, preparation time: 15 mins
