Moroccan Sweet Potato Stew (Recipe) by Ruthieki on Flickr.Via Flickr:
I found the inspiration for this recipe in a “Healthy Living” magazine I saw at someone’s house.  I love sweet potatoes, and I like cooking stews that combine beans and rice to form a complete protein source.  The result was a thick, surprisingly sweet stew that was a big hit with my roommates.  I’ll make this again. I might add some jalepenos or something else to counterbalance the sweetness of the sweet potatoes and orange juice.
Recipe:
3 T olive oil
3 medium onions, chopped
2 large sweet potatoes, diced
2 cans garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
3/4 cup brown rice
3 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons coriander
1 tsp salt, more to taste
Black pepper to taste
dash cayenne
4 cups water
1 cup orange juice
Heat the olive oil in your soup pot and saute the onions until translucent. Add the sweet potato, spices and everything else.  Bring to a boil and simmer for about 1 hr, until the rice is fully cooked and the sweet potatoes start to break down and thicken the stew. Add more water if needed. Top with cilantro, yogurt or both.
