Curried Black Beans & Sweet Potatoes
1 medium sweet potato -- peeled and diced
14 oz cab black beans -- drained & rinsed
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 tablespoon curry powder*
1 cup cooked couscous or cooked rice
Boil the sweet potatoes until tender, about 10-15 minutes. Drain them and set them aside.
In a non-stick skillet, heat the oil and saute the onion until translucent.
Add the curry powder and cook for another 30-45 seconds.
Add the black beans and sweet potatoes, and salt.
Add a little water and simmer until beans are heated through.
*NOTE: This recipe works well with the generically named grocery store "curry powder," as well as "fancier" curry blends like Madras style, Majarajah style, etc.
