Another Healthy Recipe

I took advantage of Cute W’s absence yesterday to try a new (to me) vegetarian recipe from my sister. The girls got a frozen pizza (don’t judge me!) and I made Navajo Stew from the Moosewood Restaurant Simple Suppers cookbook.

Basically, you roast a bunch of veggies.

Peppers, Onion, Sweet Potato, & Garlic

Then you puree tomatoes, cilantro, and chipotles in adobo sauce (which I had left over from my scared-to-drive-in-the-snow salsa recipe), and you throw the veggies, some black beans, and the pureed mixture all together. The only changes that I made to the recipe was that my can was tomatoes with green chiles, and I added more cilantro because I just love cilantro.

Almost done! Just stir and heat up.

I thought that it was super-deliciously tasty with some Greek yogurt.

    So glad you tried it! I’ve added a little can of green chilis cut up small to ours — along with the sauce at the end. (Can’t help but to tinker.) And the sauce is yummy over baked/roasted chicken to use up those chipotles. So many in a can — so little needed for every recipe I have. Why is that?

    Oh, and you just inspired me to buy a used copy on Amazon of the Moosewood Low Fat cookbook. I really like the one I have that you reference– a great Christmas gift from a brother-in-law — but lots of the recipes are really rich and cheesy. (Which I am not). So we’ll see what’s good in the new (to me) one.
