Just given up coffee and I’m advocating a coffee dish! I guess I’m craving it! I’m using decaf coffee in this dish though : ) Fourth day without coffee and I’m not feeling as bad as I thought. Feeling a tad exhausted but that might be because I actually haven’t got that much sleep in the last couple of days…. I’m expecting a real energy burst soon and I can’t wait!
Anyway back to the important bit, chocolate, wine and coffee in one healthy dish! How is that possible?
I was recommended this great blog Green Kitchen Stories by a friend. It’s beautiful, has great recipes and it’s all healthy stuff! Now when autumn is here and it’s getting cooler a great chilli is perfect to warm oneself up! This bean version skips all the saturated fat of a meat version and taste amazing!
The recipe is almost exactly as the original but as I’m using this blog as my online cookbook I don’t just want to use a link. But here’s the original.
Start by preparing all vegetables.
Heat oil in a large thick-bottomed casserole dish. Add onion, garlic, cumin, chili, paprika and oregano, and let fry for a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally, until the spices smells fragrant. Be careful so they don’t burn. Add pepper, carrot, parsnip and celery, let cook for another couple of minutes. Add walnuts, beans, tomatoes, water and salt and let cook for 30 minutes more. Now add red wine, coffee and chocolate, stir around carefully and let cook for 5 more minutes. Taste and season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Serve in bowls with a dollop of yogurt, fresh coriander , lime and toasted corn tortilla.
Beans lower cholesterol, prevent heart disease and gets rid of unwanted toxins. They are also good for weight loss. High fiber content so good for the digestive tract. A good source of protein and almost no fat! Also contains quite a few minerals and vitamins! So all good good good
