Did you cringe reading that? Or did you start drooling? I’ll be honest, I was skeptical when I first started putting the ingredients together. It didn’t feel right combining something so salty with something so sweet. But if there’s one thing I learned throughout my Vegan Challenge, it’s that you can take any basic plant-based ingredient and make something scrumptious with it! I stuck to my gut and went along with what I was pulling out of my pantry to start cooking.

Not only is it super tasty, it also only takes less than 10 steps to prep, and less than 10 to cook the whole thing! If you enjoy simple cooking with wonderful taste, this recipe is the one you’re looking for!
Any leftovers are welcome too! The recipe reheats well for a few days! You know what that means…Delicious & Easy Meal prep idea!
The list of ingredients may look a bit too long, but it’s actually only 10 plants. The rest are spices and sauce ingredients. I learned a tip a while back that has helped me reduce the mess I make in the kitchen, and make cleaning a little bit easier!
Tip: Prepare the spices and sauce ingredients in small separate bowls before starting the cooking process.

Another tip I learned about cooking with canned ingredients – Like: Chickpeas, Beans, Corn Cobs – is to rinse and drain them well before adding to the pan. I find it helps with maintaining the consistency of the cooking method.
I love Sweet Potatoes! Who doesn’t? They are so versatile! You can eat them in so many different ways. Which means you can cut them up into so different ways, depending on how you’ll be having them.
I usually start with cutting off the edges and slicing the potato vertically in half. Then cut each half into 2-3 slices (depending on the recipe).
With this recipe, I wanted to make the ingredients in small bite sizes, so I can enjoy a little of each with every bite I take! After cubing the Sweet Potatoes into 1-inch bite sizes, I drizzled them with a little olive oil, and tossed them in some salt and black pepper – making sure everything is well combined!
These are ready to get roasted! Get them in the oven and start prepping the rest of the ingredients.
Start with sautéing the diced Onion in the heated pan until they are translucent. Add the Garlic and Ginger for an additional minute until they are fragrant.
Add in the Green beans and Red Pepper to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes. Then add the Corn Cobs and cook for another 5 minutes – stirring frequently to avoid burning.
Add Chickpeas and Maple Beans and stir well to combine all ingredients. Then add in the Spice Mix and Sauce and cook for 5 minutes. Finally, add in the roasted Sweet Potatoes and Red Cabbage and combine everything together.
Remove from heat and enjoy!
