Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. If using meat, heat a medium sauce pan, swirl 1 Tbl of the oil across the bottom and add the meat, breaking it apart. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and brown nicely. Remove to a bowl and set aside. Heat the saucepan to medium, and add the remaining oil, onion, celery and herbs. Saute for five minutes, stirring a few times as the onion softens. Add the sweet potato, apple cider and water (2 cups liquid total). Cover and simmer for 30 minutes until the sweet potato is tender. In a small bowl mix the arrowroot powder and 1/2 cup water. Stir this into the vegetable mixture and simmer for one minute. Add the peas, ground meat or the rinsed beans. Pour into a 2 qt baking dish, top with Hilary’s Original Bites, and bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes.
