Hi. It’s Lois at Recipe Idea Shop, telling you about a delicious Sweet Potato Black Bean Casserole I made over the weekend for a Quaker potluck meal. It is gluten free and vegan, and really scrumptious. It is based on a Tex-Mex recipe from Moosewood Restaurants New Classics cookbook, one of my all-time favorite cookbooks. You can trust a Moosewood recipe.
I didn’t want my Sweet Potato Black Bean Casserole to be too spicy, so I switched up the spices a bit and added some mandarin oranges. The original recipe called for one jalapeño pepper and some cayenne. I have found that Don and my friends like a milder blend of spices. So I used just a little hot Hungarian paprika instead of cayenne and left the jalapeño pepper out. I added a diced green pepper, too.
The result was delicious and filling. I think you will like it. Please comment when you make it and let me know how you like it.
