Roasted Sweet Potato & Black Bean Chili – A Super Food for a Super Cause

When ONE.org asked me to help raise awareness about their campaign
to fight chronic malnutrition, using the humble sweet
potato, I had one important question…if I agreed, would I get some kind of tote
bag?


When I was informed there was no tote bag, I decided to
check out their info anyway, and I’m very glad I did. While I was shocked to learn
that millions of children die each year from malnutrition, it was heartening to
learn what a huge difference this delicious “super-food” could make.

To help spread the word, I offer up this colorful, and very
tasty, roasted sweet potato and black bean chili. I really enjoyed this 100%
vegetarian version, and the extra step of roasting the potatoes not only
concentrated the sweet, earthy flavors, but gave the starchy chunks a
marvelously meaty texture.


Anyway, I’m going to sign off so I can go add “Helped Bono fight
childhood malnutrition”
to my resume, but I sincerely hope you take a minute and check out
One.org for more information about this sweet potato campaign, as well as sign the nutrition petition. Thank you, and as always, enjoy!

Get your friends round and impress them with these amazing slow-cooked shoulder of pork burgers. Marinate your pork overnight and slow cook for about 6-8 hours

  • Freezable
  • Make in advance

That’s goodtoknow

To save space when marinating the pork in sauce, put it in a freezer bag and seal: This also makes it easy to massage the sauce around the meat so it’s evenly coated.

Ingredients

  • 1.5-2kg (3-4lb) boneless pork shoulder

For the sauce:

  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 8 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 4 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp dark muscovado sugar
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Baps, coleslaw and chips, to serve

Method

  1. To make the sauce: Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Spread the sauce thickly over the pork and put it in a bowl, cover with cling film and leave it to marinate in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours, or overnight.
  3. Put the pork and sauce into a slow cooker and place on the low heat setting for 8-10 hours, without opening the lid, or until the pork is very tender. Or, cook in a covered dish in the oven at 140°C/275°F/Gas Mark 1 for about 6-8 hours, or until the meat is tender, basting it occasionally with the sauce.
  4. Remove the pork from the slow cooker or oven and leave it to rest for about 10 mins.
  5. Pour the liquid into a small pan and skim off any fat. Boil to reduce and thicken slightly.
  6. Place the pork on a board and cut off the skin and any visible fat. Use 2 forks to shred the meat into small pieces and stir into the sauce. Serve hot in baps, along with coleslaw and chips
