A Promise of "Great Mouth Feel,"

said by an actual human who ate this stew who was raving about how delicious it was.  True story.  This post needs no more introduction. I leave you with the very easy recipe:

Sweet Potato Stew
About 5 servings

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 gigantic sweet potato or two regular sized potatoes, peeled and chopped (about 2.5 cups)
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
A few shakes of red pepper flakes
Fresh ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 can diced tomatoes without salt
1 can chick peas, drained
1 can white beans such as navy beans, drained
1 cup vegetable broth
1 cup boxed unsweetened plain coconut milk (Like So Delicious)
Juice of 1 lime

Saute the onions for a few minutes in the olive oil.  Then add the onion, potato, garlic and bell pepper, saute several minutes more.  Once everything is getting browned and softening add the spices and stir in.  Then add the tomatoes, beans, broth and milk and bring to a boil.  Lower to a simmer and partially cover for about 20 minutes and the potatoes are tender.  Test for salt level and add a pinch more if needed.  Then turn off the heat and stir in the lime juice (do not skip this step!).
