Recipe by smellyvegetarian
This is from The Complete Encyclopedia of Vegetables and Vegetarian Cooking by Roz Denny and Christine Ingram. The original title is cowboy hot pot, but I am making a few changes to lighten it up so I can't help but see it as a cowGIRL's healthy choice LOL.I made this with smoked cheddar instead of gouda, and ketchup instead of tomato paste as I was out. For a one-dish meal (and for true cowgirl style) make this in a large cast iron skillet (that's "eye-urn" for all you city slickers ;) )

I made recipe as posted except I premade the recipe, and took it to the Notre Dame tailgating party yesterday, and I heated it up in my friend RV. Great tasting filling recipe here, very enjoyable on a cool cloudy damp day, will make again. Made for PRMR tag.
- 1 onion, sliced
- 1 bell pepper, sliced
- 1 sweet potato, chopped (or sub 2 carrots)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil (original calls for 3 T sunflower oil)
- 4 ounces green beans, chopped
- 1 (14 ounce) can vegetarian baked beans
- 1 (7 ounce) can corn (do NOT drain)
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1 teaspoon seasoning salt
- 4 ounces smoked gouda cheese, cubed
- 16 ounces potatoes, thinly sliced (thin slices important for cooking time!)
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted (original calls for 2)
- salt and pepper, to taste
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Fry the onion, pepper, and sweet potato gently in oil until softened but not browned (you could probably steam them as well and omit the oil altogether!).
- Add the green beans, baked beans, corn with liquid, tomato paste, and seasoned salt. Bring to a boil and simmer 5 minutes.
- Transfer the vegetable mixture to a shallow ovenproof dish and scatter the cubed cheese on top.
- Cover the vegetable and cheese mixture with the sliced potatoes. Brush with butter and season with salt and pepper.
- Bake 30-40 minutes, or until potatoes are cooked and golden brown on top.
