I just wanted to pop in quickly and tell you about the dinner I had tonight. My mom used to make Caribbean Squash and Sweet Potato Stew (click the link for the recipe) when I was a teenager and I recently rediscovered the recipe. I served it over rice.
Why I like it: it is high in runner-required carbohydrates as well as fibre, but thanks to the black beans, it also has protein. Like everything I cook, it’s easy to make – just peeling, chopping and throwing in the pot. It’s flavourful – as the name would suggest, it is reminiscent of warmer climates. It’s also quite low-calorie by volume, especially when compared to other winter comfort foods – after a serving didn’t have room for dessert, and that is saying something for me.
