sweet potato, kale and black-eye bean stew

this blog has seen too much sweet stuff... I concocted this yesterday, and it looked pretty and tasted nice. Eat as is or serve over quinoa or brown rice.

1-2 leeks, sliced not too thinly
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 medium carrots, diced
2 medium sweet potatoes, cut into chunks
1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp ajwain seeds
1-2 tsp dried thyme
one bag kale, chopped coarsely, thick stems removed
1 can black-eyed beans

Heat the oil. Sautée the leeks for a little, add garlic, ajwain and thyme. When they start to become fragrant, add the carrots, stir briefly, then add 750ml water or veg stock and salt to taste. Bring to a boil. Add sweet potatoes. Boil until veggies start to soften, then throw in kale. When kale is wilting, add beans (drained and rinsed if you prefer). Heat through. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
