HEALTHIERKEN -- you sound like my baby brother! LOL he would come to my place when he was working on his master's degree, and ask me to feed him because he'd been in the lab all day and hadn't eaten. Ate everything on his plate, but he always said it would be better with meat in it! Just trying to get a rise out of me, he kept coming back so I don't think he cared that much! emoticon

RUTHEY01 -- I'm pretty liberal with all of my recipes. I'd add in any beans and veggies you have on hand...there are plenty of times when I've substituted the beans or made it with more/less/different veggies because that's what was in the fridge!

From Dr. Gillian McKeith's 7-day detox diet: taken directly from her book, You Are What You Eat.

After the first effort at this recipe, I made the following changes:

1. Only need 1 sweet potato; cut in half and steam until a fork easily passes through the meat of the sweet potato.

2. The recipe said "sliced" but the chunks are big. Instead, most of the veggies should be diced. Carrots should be grated.

3. Portions were huge; I cut the recipe down to 1/4 original ingredient amounts.

4. Simmer butternut squash until tender and mash with a spoon against the sides of the pan to make more of a "gravy".

tail.asp?recipe=1310496

Ingredients

1 sweet potato, steamed until soft, and mashed
1 can kidney beans, rinsed in a colander under cold running water and drained
1 cup diced butternut squash
1/2 cup diced red pepper
1/2 cup diced tomato
1/2 cup diced zucchini
1/2 cup diced carrot
1/2 cup diced broccoli
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced celery
2 cups water
2 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp arrowroot



Directions
1. Heat water in a large saucepan. Add the butternut squash and bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer gently for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. (Mash squash to make a gravy).

2. Add the kidney beans, onion, and garlic, simmer for another 10-15 minutes.

3. Add the peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, broccoli, and simmer for a further 5 minutes. Stir in the parsley. Add a little arrowroot to thicken.

4. Transfer into a pie dish, spread mashed sweet potato as a topping and bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.

Number of Servings: 4
