Curry Stuffed Sweet Bell Peppers

  • 2 cups great northern dry beans
  • 1 lb fresh yams
  • 1 lb sweet potatoes
  • 5 bay leaves
  • 3 Tbsp currry
  • 1/2 t crushed chili peppers
  • 1 large onion minced
  • 2 t garlic salt
  • 4 cups of cooked mixed greens (cabbage, kale etc)
  • sweet mini bell peppers

Soak beans over night covered.

Rinse thoroughly draining all excess water. Add fresh water making sure to cover at least 2-3 inches above the beans in the pot. Add the bay leaves, curry and crushed chili peppers. Cook until tender.

While the beans are cooking, rinse the yams and sweet potatoes. Put the potatoes in a roasting pan with approximately 1 inch of water and cover. Bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately one hour. Turn the oven off and let sit in the oven for approximately another hour covered.

Remove pan from the oven. The skin on the potatoes should slip immediately off the potatoes. Discard the skin, whip the potatoes and set aside.

After the beans have cooked approximately 1 hour, add the onions. When the beans are completely done (tender and easy to smash). use a potato smasher and smash the beans so some are finely smashed and others are not. Add the garlic salt and mix well.

Add the cooked vegetables to the smashed beans making sure completely mixed well. Blend in the whipped potatoes.

Cut the sweet bell peppers lengthwise removing all the seeds. Discard the seeds or save for planting. Stuff each half of the sweet bell peppers with the bean mixture.

Place the stuffed sweet bell peppers with the bean and potato mixture and place on a baking sheet. once the stuffed sweet bell peppers are on the the baking sheet, add approximately 1/2 inch of water.

Place the baking sheet with the stuffed sweet bell peppers in the oven and bake for approximately 30 -45 minutes at 350 degrees. Be careful not to burn the peppers.

Serve topping with hummus or coconut curry cashew sauce.
