Budget-friendly sweet potato and red kidney bean hot pot recipe
Feed the family with this quick, nutritious and budget-friendly winter hot pot recipe from the RACV kitchen.
Whether you’re looking for a simple and nutritious family meal or trying to save money, this budget-friendly sweet potato and red kidney bean hot pot recipe will fit the bill.
Packed full of healthy vegetables, this dish is one of the recipes used for the RACV emergency goods assist program, which supported 27 community organisations in Melbourne, Geelong, Mornington Peninsula and Gippsland during Melbourne’s pandemic lockdowns. The partnership between RACV and Hope City Mission enabled thousands of delicious meals to be cooked at the RACV City Club kitchen and delivered to disadvantaged Victorians.
This sweet potato and red kidney bean hot pot recipe uses readily available tinned red kidney beans and tinned tomatoes, and you can use frozen spinach rather than silverbeet leaves, if you prefer.
With vegetable prices fluctuating, you may wish to substitute the zucchini for broccolini, if that’s cheaper on the day you’re shopping. Consider also using second or third grade vegetables, sometimes termed “odd bunch” vegetables, to save more money.
If you have a large family or want leftovers for lunch the next day, double the measurements in this recipe. It’s so tasty, you’re going to want more.
