    vrvrvr's Note:

    This might not be for "everyone"...but we have found it curiously yummy for a week night meal without meat. If you love sweet potatoes and want to try them in a savory mix of black beans, rice and cumin...then come on! If you want a richer sauce, add 1 T. butter to the orange juice mixture.

      We eat a lot of meatless meals and like all the ingredients so I decided to give it a whirl. I had peeled 3 sweet potatoes before I realized that it was only calling for 3 cups. (I just cooked up the extra to bake with tomorrow.) The cooking was easy, but the end product tasted "off" to me. We could not taste the orange juice at all, nor the cumin. The cinnamon was very strong. I would like to try this again with more orange juice and less cinnamon. Oh, and I did use brown rice. A great idea for a healthy recipe. Sorry we did not like it more!
