spicy yam and black bean stew!


prep time: 20 minutes
cooking time: 25 minutes

2 tbsp. sunflower oil (or any other oil variant)
1 medium onion, cubed
1 medium green pepper, cubed
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp. chili powder (i used chipotle!)
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp. ground oregano
3 cups yams, peeled and cubed
1 can (14 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (14 oz.) diced tomatoes
1 1/2 tbsp. tomato paste
2 cups vegetable broth
1 tbsp. whole wheat flour (im sure this could be nixed to make it celiac friendly!)
freshly ground pepper, sea salt to taste
3 green onions (optional) finely chopped for embellishment

Heat oil in a pot over medium heat. Add the onion and green pepper and cook for 3 to 5 minutes.



Add the garlic, chili powder, cumin, and oregano, cook for 2 minutes more. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a gentle simmer. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until yams are just tender. Adjust the seasoning and sprinkle servings with chopped green onion.

(the recipe also calls for chili flakes, but i found it spicy enough without!)

loved it!
