Food blogging

Some while back I mentioned making one of Hubband, DTY, and my favorite dinners and said I would post the recipe if anyone wanted it. Someone did, I forgot to get it up right away, so am getting it up tonight. Sorry about it being late. (I promise it is really yummy!)

Sweet Potato Stew with OJ and Black Beans

1 medium yellow onion chopped
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1” chunks
1 cup orange juice
1 TBS chili powder
1 TBS honey
2 tsp. butter
2 tsp flour
1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
salt to taste
Optional: ¼ cup slivered almonds

Combine onion, potatoes, orange juice, chili powder, and honey in a pan and cook (covered) until potatoes are tender, but still holding their shape. [The original receipt called for it to be microwaved, covered and stirred once for 20 minutes. I simmer gently on the stove.]
Add beans. Blend butter and flour and add to mixture. Cook until beans are heated through and stew is thickened slightly. Salt to taste (and adjust honey, chili, and oj as desired). Sprinkle with almonds if desired.
I usually make a double recipe, as it often is better the second day.

Sounds yummy...and for the Weight Watchers who may want to make it, it's 5 points each serving if you divide it into 4 servings.

DTE--you mom said that DTY liked it, not you; actually, I can't imagine that you would!

Coffee-yarn: great, Lent is over, and NOW you post it. And to think I was saving two yams and bought a can of beans just to make this with!
