Spicy Bean Saute’ with Roasted Sweet Potatoes

The food at Airlie Center is amazing. Much of it is grown organically right on the grounds. Jeffrey Witte, chef during our Vision Summit, shared several recipes with me. I have permission to share them.

1 ea. Sweet Potato, ¾” dice
2 oz. butter, melted
1 T. brown sugar
cloves, ground, pinch
nutmeg, ground, pinch
1 t. cinnamon, ground
¼ ea. bunch cilantro, chopped
¼ c. kidney beans, drained
¼ c. chickpeas, drained
¼ c. cannellini beans, drained
1 oz. butter
1 t. garlic, chopped
1 t. cumin
1 t. coriander
½ t. cayenne pepper
½ c. vegetable stock
salt and pepper to taste

  1. Pre heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Steam or boil your sweet potatoes for 3 minutes until hot, yet still firm. While still hot, toss with butter, brown sugar, cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Place on baking sheet and put into oven until lightly caramelized, about 10-15 minutes.
  3. Melt butter in a saute’ pan and add garlic and spices.  Saute’ briefly and add beans. Saute’ for five minutes, ad stock and bring to a boil.
  4. Stir in cilantro, mix with sweet potatoes and serve.
