I wish I could remember which magazine I found this recipe in. I know I was in the dentist’s office, waiting for my child to appear with gleaming teeth. Since I love sweet potatoes and black beans, it caught my eye and I quickly scribbled it on the back of a scrap piece of paper.
My 15 year-old daughter has been a vegetarian for 3 years, so I am always on the look-out for yummy vegetarian meals that would appeal to her. She gave this dinner a thumbs up!
