Sweet Potato & Butterbean Stew

Sweet Potato & Butterbean Stew
05/08/2014 Olivia

A rather successful experiment from Olivia’s kitchen, and a super quick supper for 2.


2 medium-large sweet potatoes
1 chopped red onion
2 sticks celery
1 inch or more fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 400g can butter beans (or equivalent of own-cooked)
1/2 teaspoon rock salt
Steamed seasonal greens to serve


  • Chop the sweet potatoes into bite sized chunks and add to a pan. Just cover with water and bring to the boil.
  • Add chopped celery, grated ginger, crushed garlic and salt and simmer until the sweet potato is just tender and most of the water has evaporated.
  • Add the drained butter beans and warm through.
  • Serve with a generous helping of steamed greens.
