Meatless Chili Bean Stew

Labels: , ,

Sometimes, I crave for meatless dishes not just during Lent season when I try to give up excessive amount of meat every Friday. White chili bean stew topped with shredded sharp cheddar is one of my favorites because it's light, flavorful, and protein-rich.

Meatless Chili Bean Stew
2 tablespoons light olive oil
½ cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 teaspoons powdered cumin 
1 teaspoon powdered coriander 
1 teaspoon dried oregano
chopped or sliced hot green long and thin chiles (or jalapeƱo) , to taste
1 tablespoon chopped Italian parsley
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro, optional
2 cups cooked navy beans
1 cup navy bean cooking liquid
1 cup vegetable broth
1 teaspoon sea salt
grated sharp cheese, optional
  • Heat oil on medium heat in a saucepan. Saute onion and garlic for 3 minutes. Push onion and garlic to one side and place cumin on empty space in saucepan. Stir fry cumin for 2 minutes (do not let burn). Add the rest of ingredients except cheese, and let come to a boil. Lower heat, cover, and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Serve while hot topped with grated cheese, if desired. Omit cheese for a vegan main dish.
