Adzuki Bean, Sweet Potato and Kale Stew + Almond Avocado Cacao Power Shake for Meatless Monday

One pot veggie filled meals are the best! They are loaded with nutrition, great for experimenting with flavours and great for freezing! This simple stew is a perfect weeknight meal and great for those chilly nights, which I hate to admit but fall is officially upon us in just a few days. I love the bounty fall has to offer- pumpkins, squashes, rich greens…mmmm….I can’t wait! Looking forward to sharing many more fall inspired recipes with you this coming season! 🙂 Enjoy!

Adzuki Bean, Sweet Potato and Kale Stew

Ingredients
1 can organic adzuki beans
1 large sweet potato, cut into cubes
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 cup vegetable stock
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp turmeric
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp chili flake (optional)
pinch of cayenne (optional)
2 tsp sea salt or herbamare
1 bunch kale, chopped

Directions
Saute onion and garlic in coconut oil on low heat until onion is translucent. Add all spices and gently mix together. Add stock and sweet potato and let simmer for 10 minutes. Add beans, salt and simmer another 1o minutes. Layer kale on top of stew and put a tight fitting lid on top. This will help to steam kale. Let steam for 5 minutes or so, until kale is bright green and slightly crisp. Remove for heat and serve. **Depending on thickness of sweet potato cubes you may need to cook a few minutes longer or until desired texture is reached.
