It's Fall Y'all...Well, Almost!

The first day of Autumn isn’t officially until this Saturday, but it actually feels slightly “Fall-ish” today, and according to the weather reports, we are supposed to have some low temps in the 50s this week! Whoa, that is definitely Fall weather and I’ve already been enjoying the warming spices typically associated with the Autumn season. This Spice Market Sweet Potato Hash is something I cannot get enough of lately.


Spice Market Sweet Potato Hash

2 large sweet potatoes
1 ½ Cups black beans, cooked
1 red onion, diced
2 tsp. fresh ginger, grated
½ lemon, juiced
½ tsp. coriander
½ tsp. cumin
¼ tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. turmeric
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon

Peel and dice sweet potatoes and place with a little coconut oil in a pot over medium-low heat. Cover with lid and let cook until tender. Add onions and let cook until onions are at desired doneness. Turn off the burner and add black beans and remaining ingredients. Stir until well combined. Enjoy!
It's quite spicy, but the spices really are power houses for good health. This makes great leftovers too...and to me, is equally good straight out of the refrigerator without heating it back up.
You can also use any type of beans: black, adzuki, mung, lentils…whatever you have on hand or whatever you like best.
