Here is something I came up with this weekend. It's a stew based off Southern style ingredients. My apologies to anyone who is actually from the South and might be upset by my ignorant Yankee treatment of your staples. I'm not claiming that this is is any way authentic, just that it tastes good, and is a fairly good meal that might be fairly good for the body.
Annie's Southern Style Stew
1 cup dried small red beans
4 ounces country style ham diced (optional)
2 large Onions, diced medium
2 teaspoons chicken bouillon, or 1 cube
1 large sweet potato, unpeeled, diced small
1 27 oz can Southern Style Seasoned Mixed Greens (I used Glory Foods brand)
Hot Sauce to Taste
Presoak beans according to directions on package. Cook in a large pot covered with a lid with ham and onions, and enough water to cover with by a couple of inches at least, for 1 to 2 hours until the beans are done, and some have burst. Add more water as needed. Add the bouillon and sweet potato. Continue cooking until the sweet potato is tender. Add greens, undrained. Season with hot sauce to taste (I used Tabasco Chipotle, but your favorite will do fine). Turn heat up high, and cook with the lid off until enough liquid has evaporated off to desired thickness. Freezes well in individual portions. Good served seasoned with more hot sauce and vinegar, if you like. I would estimate that this makes at least a good six or seven reasonably sized servings, of about six or eight ounces each.
