If you like a tasty sweet potato dish and an excellent red kidney beans recipe, you will love this dish. Sweet Potatoes (also called yam) and Red Kidney Beans Fricassee is relatively simple to make and economical. It is a straightforward recipe you can make in minutes if you want to serve it as a side dish.

I find this dish to be a great alternative to everyday meals for the holidays. It does not take a long time to make, and everyone will be amazed at how those two ingredients complement each other.

Holiday meals are usually the same because many people only cook typical dishes on these occasions.

Why cook it only on holidays only?

Is it a holiday dish?

A sweet potato dish is a must during the holidays. I find myself sometimes cooking or baking sweet potatoes or yams, as some people may call it, anytime throughout the year, not because I like sweet potatoes but because of the health benefits.

It’s good to know the benefits of sweet potatoes

There are some amazing articles on the web that will explain these benefits. But let me share this great tip with you. Ground cumin and ground fennel are best friends with sweet potatoes. No kidding! Try it, and you will see. Don’t forget to research the benefits of both yams and beans.
