Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
The chili base is so amazing. Do not omit the cocoa as it is magic. Great dish all around. The sweet potatoes not only make an interesting addition, but they turn this into a complete protein meal. I will admit that they contrasted too much with the base, but it really works well. My mods... used Italian seasoning due to no oregano, added some paprika, used brown sugar instead of white. if it seems like too much heat reduce or omit the ancho chili, and you can remove jalapeno seeds. I would not limit Chipotle because it adds its own flavor and does not contribute much to the heat.

African Sweet Potato and Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
Interesting concept. Note that in my version I omitted the peanut for cashews and the peanut butter for more cashews. I did not add salt, but rather added sea salt roasted cashews. Still needed salt. The texture is weird, the water called for is too much (and in my version I had about 20% more sweet potato and tomato than called for, but kept the water cited). This dish is rich, but lacking in something I can't quite figure out what. Cilantro is a must. Without cilantro, the taste is flat and earthy. Cilantro compliments and enhances it well. I think next time I will try it with vegetable broth over plain water. I think that is the missing dimension here.
