Jerk Sweet Potato & Black Bean Curry

I chose to make this recipe as part of my new healthy eating plan as it contained black beans that were on my superfoods list. It was really easy to cook and so tasty, I’ll make this again.

Sweet potatoes count as one of your five a day and are full of vitamin A which protects your vision and boosts your immune system and black beans which are packed full of protein, fibre and flavonoids – an antioxidants that help your arteries stay relax and pliable.

1 onion finely chopped
2tbs oil
Small bunch of coriander chopped
4 tsp Jerk seasoning
400g chopped tin tomatoes
4 tsp white wine vinegar
3 tsp sugar
2 sweet potatoes, cubed
400g black beans
1 red pepper chopped
600g veg stock

Fry the onion and peppers for 5 mins. Add the jerk seasoning and half the coriander, fry for one minute.

Add the tin tomatoes, stock, vinegar and sugar, simmer for 10 mins. Then add the sweet potatoes and simmer for 10 more minutes. Add in the black beans and simmer for 5 more mins. Then cool and chill for up to two day.

To Serve heat through gently on the hob and scatter the remaining coriander.

  1. Please do, it is so yummy. I’ve started adding a little corn flour to it recently to thicken it up a little more and cooking sweet potatoes before I add them. Theses little changes make it even better. Enjoy x
