1 large onion, diced
2 large organic sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
4 medium organic carrots, sliced
1/2 organic red bell pepper & ½ organic green bell pepper, chopped
2 – 15 ounce cans organic black beans
2 – 15 ounce can fire roasted diced organic tomatoes
4 cups organic vegetable broth
2 T chili powder
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp cayenne (or to taste)
11/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
Sautee onions and garlic for a minute or two, then add sweet potatoes, carrots and bell peppers until onions are soft, about 5-6 minutes. Reduce heat to medium low, and add remaining ingredients, stirring to combine well. Simmer, partially covered and stirring occasionally, for 30-45 minutes, until flavors have mingled and vegetables are cooked.
Or for crock pot: sauté onions & garlic on high heat until fragrant & just starting to brown; combine all ingredients in crock pot & cook on high for approximately 4 hours or on low for about 8, depending on how small sweet potatoes & carrots have been cut.
Delicious by itself or served over organic brown rice.
