Sweet Potatoes and Black Beans

“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. (Recipe compliments of Betty Crocker.)”
