Getting a quick fix
This Jamaican Red Bean Stew was the first recipe I tried from Quick-Fix Vegetarian. While it was a crock-pot meal, which means that it did take some time to cook, it certainly was a low-fuss meal. I made it on a Saturday, as I was in and out of the house running errands. It was always pleasant to come back to an apartment that was filled with the spicy-sweet smell of this stew--filled with kidney beans and sweet potatoes and other lovely veggies, and cooked in a base of coconut milk and Jamaican-inspired spices. I served it over whole-wheat couscous (another quick fix), and the entire batch was good for a whole week of lunches. The flavors became even more complex and interesting on day two.
I'll be looking to explore some other quick fixes this weekend!
