Ok, I will be honest with you. I am not a big fan of black beans, or beans in general for that matter. If I made this, I would take out the beans and add some other form of protein such as beef, pork, or chicken. Actually, lamb might be pretty good too. Ok, now I am getting excited to make this dish. Try it for yourself and let me know what great ideas you come up with. Enjoy!
What you will need:
1 medium onion, cut in half and sliced thin
4 medium cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp minced fresh ginger
1-1/2 cups sweet potatoes cut in 1/2-inch cubes
1 cup green peppers, thinly julienned
1 cup red peppers, thinly julienned
1 tsp garam masala
1 TBS + 1/2 cup vegetable broth
2 cups or 1 15 oz can black beans (BPA free), drained
2 oz Chevre goat cheese (optional)
salt and black pepper to taste
4 whole wheat tortillas
Prepared salsa (optional)
1 head of romaine lettuce, shredded (remove outer leaves and discard)
How to make it:
Chop onions and garlic and let sit for 5-10 minutes to bring out their health-promoting properties.
Prepare other vegetables.
Heat 1 TBS broth in a 12 inch stainless steel skillet. Healthy Sauté onion, garlic, ginger, and peppers in broth over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
