This was a great vegetarian chili, another wonderful recipe adapted from The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook.

1 cup pinto beans

1 cup kidney beans

1 cup black beans

Soak overnight, then cook as usual. Don’t drain the beans yet, you will need some of the cooking water.

Olive oil

1 onion, chopped

4 cloves of garlic, minced

4 carrots, chopped

1 bell pepper, chopped

1 Tbsp ground cumin

1 Tbsp chili powder

2 tsp oregano

28 oz can diced tomatoes

14 oz can tomato sauce

In a large stock pot heat the olive oil over medium high heat, add the onion and cook until beginning to brown, add the garlic and cook 1 more minute.   Add the carrots, bell pepper, cumin, chili powder, and oregano, stir around and cook 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, and tomato sauce along with the cooked beans and 4-5 cups of the cooking liquid. Simmer for about 25 minutes. Taste for salt.

I served this with polenta and sautéed collard greens.

This recipe was yummy, it takes a while to make though. Good recipe for a Saturday or Sunday. This is adapted from Everyday Food (Martha Stewart).

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 onion, diced

3 cloves garlic, smashed

2 bunches collard greens, de-stemmed and torn into bite size pieces

salt and pepper

1 28-oz can diced tomatoes

1 smoked ham hock

2 cups frozen black-eyed peas

Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large pot or dutch oven. Add onion and garlic and cook until the onion softens, about 4 minutes.  Add the greens, cover and cook until mostly wilted, about 8 minutes. 

Add the tomatoes, ham hock and about 3 cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, partially cover and cook about 2 hours until greens are tender and the ham separates from the bone.

Add the frozen black-eyed peas, partially cover and cook another 30 minutes, adding more water if needed. 

Season with salt and pepper.

I served this with brown rice.
