Wong Vivant's Sweet Potato Tacos
Honestly, do yourself a favor and follow the recipe found here: http://wongvivant.blogspot.com/2012/11/super-hero-food.html
Here's my take:
3 Sweet Potatoes peeled and cubed
8 Cloves Garlic
Lots of Cumin
Lots of Smoked Hot Paprika
Salt and Pepper (as per usual)
1 can Black Beans
1 Green Bell Pepper diced
1 Bunch Kale chopped in large chunks
1 Bunch Cilantro
Mexican Shredded Cheese
On a large baking sheet place the peeled and cubed Sweet Potato, Tomatillos, Onion, Garlic, and Jalapeños. Sprinkle them with Cumin, Paprika, Cayenne, Salt and Pepper, and drizzle with Olive Oil. Roast at 375 for about 30 minutes.
Next, open the can of Beans and bring them to a simmer with the diced Green Bell Pepper.
While that Beans are simmering, blanch the Kale. I wasn't 100% sure what it meant to blanch something, so I looked it up. Basically, it means you stick the Kale (or Green Beans, Broccoli, whatever) into boiling water for a brief amount of time and then remove it and place it under cold water. This brightens their green color and takes away some of the bitterness. Add the Kale to the Beans.
Once the roasting items are done roasting, remove them from the oven and pulverize the Tomatillos, Jalapeños most of the Garlic, most of the Onion, and Cilantro in a food processor to make a salsa. Add Salt if necessary and more the Spices if desired. Add the remaining Garlic and Onion to the Beans.
Serve everything on a Tortilla with Cheese.
