Make this delicious Sweet Potato and Black Bean dish for a dinner with Caribbean flair. The flavor of the hot Italian turkey sausage really goes well with the spices in the dish to give this recipe a well-rounded island flavor.
Remove seasoning packet from rice mix; discard. Cook rice according to package directions, omitting fat. Keep warm.
Crumble the sausage into a large nonstick skillet, and stir over medium-high heat until browned (about 8 minutes). Drain sausage, and set aside.
Melt the butter in pan over medium-high heat. Add thinly sliced onion and garlic, and sauté for 3 minutes. Stir in the Maple-Glazed Sweet Potatoes and the next 4 ingredients (potatoes through cinnamon), and reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook for 10 minutes. Stir in sausage, green onions, and beans; cover and cook 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve over rice.
