White Bean and Jackfruit Chili

white beans and jackfruitIngredients
1 medium yellow or white onion, peeled and quartered

2 medium serrano chiles 1 medium jalapeno pepper

5 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed

4 cups vegetable broth

2 (15-oz) cans white beans (such as navy, great northern, or cannellini), drained and rinsed, divided

2 tablespoons canola oil

1 tablespoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon ground coriander

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

2 (15-oz) cans jackfruit in brine, drained, thoroughly rinsed, and patted dry

1 bay leaf Garnishes: diced avocado, thinly sliced radishes, fresh cilantro leaves, lime wedges, and tortilla strips

How to Make It
Step 1
Preheat broiler to HIGH. Arrange onion, serrano, and jalapeno on a rimmed baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Broil 6 inches from the element until charred on all sides, turning occasionally, about 10 minutes. Place peppers and onion in a small bowl and cover with plastic wrap; let steam 10 minutes. Peel peppers; discard peels, stems, and seeds. Combine peppers, onion, garlic, 1/2 cup vegetable stock, and 1 can navy beans in a blender; blend until smooth.

Step 2
Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high. Add cumin, oregano, coriander, and cayenne; cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add jackfruit and cook, stirring often, until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add onion mixture, remaining 31/2 cups vegetable stock, remaining can of beans, and bay leaf; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until slightly reduced about 15 minutes. Remove bay leaf and serve with garnishes

One of the healthiest staples you can use in your cooking. This is the basic, super healthy recipe. Add any of the suggestions from the blog post to suit your own taste!

Recipe type: entree
Serves: 20 small patties
1 cup red onion, finely chopped
1 cup broccoli (peel and chop stalk too!), finely chopped
1 cup carrots, grated
1 15.5 ounces can pinto or roman beans, rinsed, drained
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
In a large bowl, add the pinto beans and mash with a potato masher or a fork. Add the rest of the ingredients and incorporate evenly by hand. Form into meatballs and flatten. Each patty should be about ½ inch thick and the diameter can be as large as you want.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add the veggie patties. Brown the bottoms (2-3 minutes) and flip to brown the other side, 2-3 more minutes. Serve

MANY WAYS to change it: Grate or finely chop any leftover veggies, add to bowl. Select a can of beans or two (or three depending on how much vegetables you use) and make sure there are pinto beans because they hold together the best. Drain and mash the beans completely. Use hands to incorporate all. Add spices (see above). Mix with hands again (great recipe for kids to help with!) Then taste to your liking. The mixture doesn’t need to be cooked, so tasting while mixing is good and delicious! At this point, if it’s too dry, add more pinto/roman beans. If it’s too wet (from extra ingredients such as grated onions or a can of refried beans) add either oat flour or whole wheat flour until it gets to the consistency. Use the flour if you are making a big meal. Spray a pan with cooking oil using a Misto, place the patties in on medium-high heat, brown that side, spray the other side with oil and flip until golden brown. Serve hot!
