In this recipe, sweet potato noodles are served with spinach, mushroom, carrot and onion. I thought it was quite tasty.

Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Bread

Posted on

The original recipe is completely gluten-free, in addition to being yeast-free and vegan. For my version I used, instead of 300 grams of plain gluten-free flour, 95 grams of buckwheat flour, 100 grams of brown rice flour, 100 grams of coarse tapioca flour, 1½ teaspoons xanthan gum, 1½ teaspoons potato starch, and 1½ teaspoons ground flax meal.

Overall I thought it wasn’t quite as tasty as the gluten-free bread rolls, but it was easier to prepare.

Bean Stew with Sweet Potato

Posted on

I based this Brazilian-inspired bean stew using a recipe which is no longer available online. As usual, if someone wants the recipe I’ll type it on on request. I used black-eyed beans rather than black beans. The stew also contains onion, garlic, bell pepper, tomatoes, chilli and cilantro.

Roasted Root Vegetables

Posted on

I used 2 carrots, 3 beets, 2 sweet potatoes, 4 potatoes and 2 red onions in this mix. It was seasoned with 2 tablespoons olive oil; 1 teaspoon salt; 1 teaspoon dried rosemary; 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme; 3 toes minced garlic; 3 blanched, peeled and chopped tomatoes; and 1/2 teaspoon mild Hungarian paprika powder (quantities estimated). I cooked it covered for 45 minutes in a moderate oven, then removed the foil and let it cook an additional half hour.

This is nice as a side dish, or you can add some protein to make a full meal.
