When I said that my kale and sweet potato fries recipes were my favorite entries in the Saucy Mama’s “Skinny Mama-Cooking with Mustard” contest, I think I lied… these are really good too! We even warmed them up for lunch the next day. What a power-packed, delicious way to enjoy beans and veggies!! Move over Gardenburger!

(To further cut calories, use non-stick cooking spray)
In a medium non-stick skillet, saute onion, bell pepper, mushrooms and garlic in 1 teaspoon olive oil, on medium-high heat until soft. Set aside. When veggie mixture cools, add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.
