Recipe for a busy evening




I'm back for my nearly month long self-imposed hiatus. Alas, my vacation did not consists of hamocks and Margarittavilles as you might have surmised, but of renos, repairs, other obligations and the flu.

Unfortunately, an emergency repair (which has left me with a little less ceiling in the living room than I previously had) derailed today's plans for a fancy return post. I'll try that one again later in the week, but, in the meantime I thought I'd post tonight's dinner — a recipe that has gotten me through many errand-filled evenings recently.

SWEET POTATO QUESADILLAS

Ingredients

1 tpsp olive oil
2 sweet potatoes (peeled and chopped)
1 red bell pepper (chopped)
1/2 cup canned black beans
2 large flour tortillas

Instructions

Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Add sweet potatoes and cook for 10 min. Add peppers and beans and cook for another 10 min. Spoon mixture on to half of each tortillas and fold. Cook in a grill pan (or on the grill) for 5 min per side, or for 5 min if using a panini press (my preference).

Cut each quesadilla in two, and serve with sour cream and salsa.

Best,

kh
