Beans, Sweet potatoes, Eggplants and Chard

I asked for Kidney beans but instead got these red and white beans (I think they are called pinto beans or cranberry beans not sure). I made a really nice dinner with these- after the beans cooked for 1.5-2 hours, it really didn’t take more than 25 minutes to cut the vegetables and cook. We had it with Couscous and it was a perfect match.

Of course – you do need to soak the beans for 12-24 hours in plenty of water, wash well and change the water 2-3 times if possible.
