  • 2 medium sweet potatoes peeled and chopped into 1 inch cubes

Instructions:


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan and add the sweet potatoes, onion and garlic. Cook on a medium heat for 5 minutes until the veg has softened slightly.
  2. Stir in the chili, cayenne pepper, cinnamon and cumin and cook for a futher couple of minutes.
  3. Add the kidney beans and chopped tomatoes, stir to coat the vegetables thoroughly then simmer gently for 30-35 minutes. Add a little water if it becomes too thick.
