Sweet Potato + Black Bean Chili

sweet potato and black bean chili

Posting about chili seems oddly appropriate today, in the aftermath of yet another snow storm in Pittsburgh. Looking out my window, there are a good 4 inches of snow that have yet to melt. Mother Nature clearly didn’t get the memo that Spring was supposed to have sprung. What I love about chili: it’s the kind of meal that takes very little prep or effort, but has a huge payoff at the end. And if you make enough of it, it will payoff all week long. Also, you get to eat it with cornbread. Lots and lots of cornbread. This chili was inspired by my love for black beans, sweet...

Tempeh with Vegetables in a Black Bean Sauce

I know that most people post about chocolate and sweets on Valentine’s Day. But I’m not most people. In fact, Valentine’s Day is my least favorite holiday of the year. Don’t get me wrong. I think it’s important to celebrate love. I just think that we should be celebrating that love 365 days a year. Moving on. This recipe would be a great meal to serve for your favorite sweetie. Or even just for yourself. Because, after all, it’s important to love yourself too. And what better way to show your love than with a delicious home cooked meal.

Quick and Easy Black Bean Burgers

The Hubster still claims that the lentil burger is his favorite. I think this one takes the cake. They are comparable taste wise. And take half the time to prepare. You do the math. Add a sweet potato and some greens (salad, green beans, peas, brussels sprouts) for a totally health, and guilt-free, burger night.

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Wrap

For those that follow me on Twitter, you know that I’ve been struggling with food and what to make for dinner for a while now. Thanks to everyone’s great suggestions, I actually forced myself to look for things to cook, peruse food blogs, and just get excited again by food. I am also trying to remind myself on a fairly regular basis that there is a lot that I can still eat and to focus on that vs what my restrictions are. The food exploration started with the drool-worthy Vegan Yum Yum (thanks @theveganmentor for the suggestion). Not only did it appeal to my belly, it appealed to my eyeballs....
