Tiny Montgomery Kitchen is Open - Black Bean Stew with Sweet Potatoes!

It was a long, hot (so very, very hot!) summer and I am so ready for this wonderful cool autumn weather. And what goes better with cool weather than steaming bowls of slow-cooked soups and stews? I have been thinking about soup for weeks, and I am looking forward to seeing you all again!

For the first soup this season, I think a thick black bean stew is in order. I plan on loading it full of vegetables including carrots, celery, onions, garlic (lots of garlic!), a variety of peppers, a splash of tomatoes, and for a bit of sweetness as a counterpoint to the savory spice, bite-sized chunks of sweet potatoes. I want to keep it vegetarian, so I will add homemade soy chorizo to round out the flavors. This will be a hearty and filling bowl that you can eat as is; but if you want, it will be delicious served over your favorite grain like brown rice, quinoa, or couscous.

The cold temperatures also make me feel like baking, so I you can also order freshly baked crusty round white (and I think I'll throw in a       touch of cornmeal for crunch) loaves of bread to accompany your stew.

Since we all need to get back into the swing of things, I'm giving a slightly longer lead time: orders taken until Thursday. Just email me at: or to order. UPDATE/REVISION!!!!! I am aiming for delivery/pick up on Friday/Saturday/Sunday. When you order, let me know when the best day/times for you. As always, I accept charge, cash, check, and Paypal.

I'm so excited to be cooking for you again! I hope you are excited too!
