Long time, no chat…. Things have been crazy busy here at Your Forever Nutrition Counseling and I apologize for taking a bit of a break from this blog.
Any how – I am back and have a DELICIOUS recipe to share with all of you. Last night, was one of those nights when I had nothing planned for dinner. A blizzard was on the horizon and I literally opened the cupboards and asked for a divine intervention for dinner! The gang loved it, so I thought I would share. It is kind of a mix between a Chili and a Stew.
Chunky Veggie Stew
2 tbl olive oil
2 large onions, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 yellow pepper, chopped
1 orange pepper, chopped
3 cloves crushed garlic (more is always good!)
2 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp ground cumin
1-2 tsp oregano
ground black pepper to taste
1 tbsp brown sugar
2 (15 ounce) cans black beans rinsed and drained
1 (16 ounce can) garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 (16 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
28 ounce can crushed tomatoes (do not drain)
1 (15 ounce can) diced tomatoes with green chili (do not drain)
Heat olive oil, add onions, peppers and garlic and cook until soft
Add remaining ingredients and simmer for about 1 hour.
This recipe is easy, delicious and best of all, LOADED with fiber and lean protein. Even better than all of that – I bet you have all the ingredients in your kitchen right now.
