This recipe for Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burrito is excellent; it's very
filling and satisfying. Be aware that it makes A LOT! In general, I've found
that I've really enjoyed the recipes from the new
_Moosewood_Restaurant_Low-Fat_Favorites_, modified to saute in water rather than
oil to make them VLF.
