Baked Beans with Tofu Served Over Squash, Batata & Pico de Gallo

In this wonderful dish you will find delicious yellow Squash, Spanish sweet potato (Batata) and some delicious homemade Pico de Gallo. 
Batata is a Spanish sweet potato that is so delicious,  it must be boiled and served with a bit of a sprinkle of salt and olive oil. The flavor is very gentle and soft to swallow with a sweet smooth flavor.  Its outer layer has a pinkish/purple color.  Batata come in a variety of sizes and they are very inexpensive. 
This was a great meal and very filling.

Baked Beans

1/2 block of firm tofu (cut & diced in small pieces)

1 can of  kidney beans
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 of sweet onion (diced in fine small pieces)

1/4 c.  maple syrup
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. of black pepper
2 envelopes of Jamon
(artificial ham flavoring found in any Spanish section at your local grocery store)

In a mixing bowl mix together all these ingredients and then place the beans on top of a half sliced yellow squash, bake it for 45 minutes covered with foil at 365 degrees. Also peel your Batata and bake on the side of the squash wrapped in foil.
Pico de Gallo
Chop in small pieces
 1 eight oz. containers very ripe cherry tomatoes or 4 large tomatoes
1 large yellow onions
1 bunch Cilantro
1 or 2  avocados
1 fresh jalapeno peppers
 1 T. lemon  juice

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and allow it to sit for about 15 minutes before serving.  
Serve the squash with the baked beans, sliced baked Batata and Pico de Gallo on the excellent meal.
