Adzuki Bean Bake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Antifreesz

This is a Gillian McKeith recipe that I've grown to enjoy. I have added diced sweet potatoes to the veggie mix at times for a sweeter taste with wonderful results. Keep in mind that cook time will vary on how soft or crisp you like your sweet potato topping.
