I made this for the first time tonight - I reckon the leftovers will taste even better!

Mole recipe makes around 4 servings, the mash was enough for two.

1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 chipotle chilli, finely chopped
2 tsp chilli powder
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp smoked paprika
1tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp allspice
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 cup vegetable broth
A couple of handfuls of raisins or sultanas
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp agave syrup
1 can black beans (approximate amount I used prepared dried beans)

Saute the onion for 5 minutes or so, then add the garlic and all the herbs/spices and fry for another minute. Add the broth and tomatoes and bring to the boil. Add the raisins or sultanas, cocoa powder and peanut butter and bring down to a simmer for 15-20 minutes until reduced a bit.

Stick it in a blender and puree until smooth. Put it back in the pan and stir in the agave and black beans. Leave to sit for a while so the flavours can develop.

For the ginger-sweet potato mash, chop up one peeled sweet potato and one white potato into chunks and boil/steam until soft. Mash up with a little bit of soya margarine and ½ tsp of very finely chopped root ginger. Season with black pepper and a bit of salt.

Stick it all in a bowl and enjoy!

This does sound delightful. I want to try it, but I don't have any chipolte peppers or smoked paprika. I do have some chipotle salsa though, and liquid smoke. Do you suppose some clever substitutions might work here?

I don't see why not - the orignal recipe called for 5 tsp normal chilli powder, I added the chipotle because I love the smoky flavour! So you could try just adding some liquid smoke and the full 5tsp of chilli. I've never had liquid smoke (it doesn't appear to be stocked anywhere where I live) so I will leave the amount for you to guess

Btw, I'm eating the leftovers right now - the sweetness has developed nicely. I'm having it on polenta with brocolli, yum!

I also love and use smoked chilli powder quite a lot when making marinades and sauces. I usually buy Bart's which is excellent.
