Ok, Yesterday I told you I'd share this recipe with you. I got inspired by my favorite dish at Yats, the B&B, and by what I happened to have in my fridge/pantry. :)
Roasted Veggie Stew
Serves 2, 1+ hours cooking time
1 Onion - sliced
1/2 T Olive Oil
1/2 C frozen corn kernels
1/2 C Okra
1 Can Diced Tomatoes - quickly drained
1/2 Can drain & rinsed black beans
* all quantities can easily be adjusted to personal preference. :)
Saute the onion in olive oil until it's transparent....
Turn the heat down and add a lid. Let the onions sweat for a while stirring periodically, until they're nice and browned. :)
Meanwhile.... Spread the corn kernels on a pan and roast at 450 until they've browned a bit.
At the same time roast some okra the same way....
Once the corn & okra are done roasting add them along with the black beans & tomatoes to the onions. Stir, cover and let simmer for 30-40 minutes. Salt & Pepper to taste.
I REALLY enjoyed this dish. It tasted nothing like the B&B but it was definitely good on its own. If you like a kick to your foods add some hot pepper at the end too. I generally like mine a little spicy but I was trying to keep this a bit more kid friendly. :)
Enjoy on top of brown rice with a dollop of Greek Yogurt on top!
