At the end of the market that I manage last November I stocked up on lots of storable produce. I stocked up on kabucha squash blue magic hubbards and bought a 25 pound box of sweet potatoes. I am slowly working my way through 25 pounds. Blue Magic Hubbard Squash and black bean burritos, sweet potato pizza and a favorite of friends: sweet potato fries. But one of my favorites is baked sweet potato with butter and Keswick Creamery fresh bovre with garlic and oregano (Their take on fresh goat cheese- chevre). Also, a great breakfast is steel cut oats with baked sweet potato stirred in.
Blue Magic Hubbard Squash and Black Bean Burritos
Before Christmas, I was invited to a vegan baby Jesus Burrito Party. I racked my brain on how to prepare a burrito filling that wasn't the same old black bean filling. So I came up with this. Also, after looking through mexican cookbooks I was pleasantly surprised that I approrprately selected a traditional Mexican vegetable: squash.
First, I cut up the squash into small 1/2 inch cubes, tossed with olive oil, ground cumin, and cayenne. Roasted in 400 Degree oven till the edges are a bit caramalized
Next, heat up on stove top olive oil, saute onions, add crushed red pepper flakes, add black beans.
Finally, toss squash cubes with beans. Stuff your tortilla for a delicious burritto.
Sweet potato fries
Julien sweet potatoes into 1/2 inch matchsticks. Toss with olive oil, cajun seasoning and salt. Roast at 400 degrees till perfect
Baked sweet potato: two ways
This preperation of the sweet potato is very simple and so delicious!
1. Wrap potato in aluminum foil poke with fork in several locations, bake in 400 degree oven till insides are mushy, cut open, add fresh raw butter and a scoop of keswick creamery garlic and oregano bouvre.
2. Saute steel cut oats in butter, add water, bring to boil till al dente (what I love about steel cut oats is the all dente bite and the nutty smell as I simmer the oats) meanwhile bake a sweet potato in oven. When oats are done, add raisins, brown sugar and scoop the potato into the oats. YUM!
