Easy, flavorful, protein-packed dish that can be served any time of day as a meal, side dish, or snack.
Harissa White Bean Chili
Hearty vegetarian comfort food with a little kick of heat and a ton of flavor. Recipe slightly adapted from NYT Cooking and definitely on the will-make-again list.
Braised White Beans and Greens with Parmesan
A hearty mixture of white beans and greens packed with flavor.
Dr. John’s Chili
This is JB’s recipe from the Gourmet Nutrition cook book. We make it on the regular to have on hand in the fridge or freezer for an easy and nutritional meal option when we don’t feel like cooking or need something fast.
A stuffed, roasted, fresh poblano pepper with a flavorful mixture of beef, beans and cheese. We made extras and they were great left over.
Black Bean, Tomato, and Chili Pepper Pizza
A black bean base, zingy pickled jalapeños, roasted tomatoes, what’s not to love about this?!?
Spicy White Beans & Greens
Just a little dab of bacon fat and a parmesan rind really round out this dish. It has a bright finish.
Curried Red Kidney Beans and Cauliflower with Spinach
This flavorful stew was a great way to finish off the cold and snowy day. Rich, warm, Indian flavors come together with lots of nutrient-packed veggies for a dish that’s both tasty and healthy.
Collard Greens Soup with Beef
I know it sounds like blasphemy, but we actually had beef short ribs left over. I decided to add them to this lovely Turkish-inspired soup and it was a home run!
White Bean Chicken Chili
This is a really lovely meal to make on a cold and snowy day. We had it over rice for dinner, then when we reheated it for lunch the next day we had it without and it was equally as good. Even though it starts with a couple of pieces of bacon, it’s a fairly lean recipe. The Cotija cheese is a bright pop of flavor on top and the cilantro really finishes it.
