* 1 medium onion cut in half and sliced thin
* 4 medium cloves garlic, chopped
* 1 tsp minced fresh ginger
* 1½ cups sweet potatoes cut in ½ inch cubes
* 1 cup green peppers, thin julienne
* 1 cup red peppers, thin julienne
* ½ cup + 1 TBS vegetable broth

* *optional 2 oz Chevre goat cheese
* salt and black pepper to taste
* 4 whole wheat tortillas
* Topping
* *(optional) prepared salsa
* 1 head of romaine lettuce, shredded


1. Prepare vegetables by chopping and slicing.
2. Heat 1 TBS broth in a skillet. Sauté onion, garlic, ginger, and peppers in broth over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add sweet potatoes and mix well. Add 1/2 cup broth and cook covered on low heat for about 10 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
3. Add beans making sure they are drained well first and mix. Cook for another 5 minutes and season with salt and pepper.
4. While vegetables are cooking shred lettuce. You also might want to wrap tortillas in foil and place in the oven to warm while you are preparing the rest of the ingredients.
5. Place vegetable mixture in tortilla and top with some goat cheese. Roll and top with salsa and shredded lettuce.

Serves 4

Healthy Cooking Tip - Cutting bell peppers thin and the sweet potatoes small will allow their flavors to blend together better as they cook than if they are cut into large pieces.
