Sweet Potato and Kidney Bean Stew With Prunes

I love the combination of sweet potatoes and kidney beans. This is another stew of those which I cooked up the other day. You can eat it immediately, but it gets better when you let it sit for one hour before serving. The one hour resting time is in the cook time - without it it's just 30 minutes.
This made a dinner for the two of us, without rice or bread or any other carb side dish.
