Stuffed Potatoes with Black Beans and Red Pepper Sauce


I was looking through this month's Vegetarian Times and kept checking off recipes to make.  I love this magazine.  Every recipe calls my name and this one particularly did.  I had all the ingredients on hand and it looked easy to make.  Put that all together and there I was, in my kitchen, cooking away.


Stuffed Potatoes with Black Beans and Red Pepper Sauce


4 medium russet or Idaho potatoes, scrubbed and pat dry
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided, plus more for rubbing potatoes
4 large onions, thinly sliced
2 medium red bell peppers, thinly sliced 
1 cup cooked black beans

Method:


Preheat oven to 350°F. Rub potatoes with oil. 



Prick each potato a few times with fork, and bake 

1 1/2 to 2 hours on baking sheet, or until tender.


Heat 1 tablespoon oil in saucepan over medium heat. 



Add onions, cover, and cook 20 minutes, or until onions are browned. 



Add bell peppers, and cook, uncovered, 5 minutes.


Transfer 2 cups onion mixture to food processor, and blend with 1/3 cup hot water until smooth. Keep warm.


 Return remaining 2 cups onion mixture to medium heat. 



Add beans, 2/3 cup water, and remaining 1 tablespoon oil. 



Simmer 4 minutes, or until liquid thickens.


Split potatoes down center, and fluff flesh with fork. 



Spoon 1 tablespoon blended sauce into each potato. Top with 2/3 cup filling, and serve with extra sauce on side.



Eat and enjoy.
