Spicy Vegan White Bean Chili - Slow Cooker 

Print Friendly 

Description:
This recipe calls for Cumin which is an herb that many associate with Mexican and Spanish foods, but it is also widely used in Middle Eastern and Indian cooking. It has a very distinct flavor, and is most often used in packaged taco seasonings (don’t eat those- make your own!)

Cumin’s flavour makes it a favorite for many, but it’s health supporting properties are impressive too!

Cumin is a good source of Iron, Manganese, and other vitamins and minerals. Some research shows that cumin can stimulate the production of pancreatic enzymes and help digestion. One study found that cumin was protective against memory loss and the damaging effects of stress on the body.

Another study evaluated the antioxidant content of Cumin and found it more effective than other common antioxidants including Vitamin C.


Ingredients:
- 1 yellow Onion, chopped
- olive oil 2 Tbsp.
- great northern beans 1 can
- 4 cloves of garlic, finely minced
- cumin 2 tsp
- cloves 1/4 tsp
- oregano 1 1/2 tsp
- turmeric 1/4 tsp
- cayenne pepper 1/2 tsp
- mild green chilis 1 cup (2 4 oz. cans)
- veggie broth 3 cups
- salt 1 tsp, or to taste
- pepper 1/2 tsp
- fresh parsley 2 Tbsp.

Choose organic when you can!


Directions:
In a slow cooker, combine all ingredients except the parsley. Set to low heat for 8-10 hours. Keep in mind that the longer you cook, the spicier the chili will become! (Adjust the amount of chilis accordingly) Sprinkle parsley over top, stir and enjoy!


Notes: You could also add in other beans such as kidney beans

Wellness Tip
What Affects Iron Absorption?
Iron supplementation can be beneficial for some people who are at risk of deficiency such as pregnant women, female athletes or women with heavy menstrual cycles. To get the most out of iron supplements, avoid taking them with coffee, tea or milk. These beverages contain substances that can inhibit the absorption of iron. Wait 90 minutes or more to drink coffee, tea or milk, after taking iron. Vitamin C and meat proteins can improve iron absorption. Check with your physician before adding an iron supplement to your diet.

Recipe
Raw Almond Cherry Macaroons
Category: Raw Foods
Description: Cherries can be sweet or sour, red or black. My favorite varieties are the big black ones. We used to enjoy “Bing” cherries I commonly now see a variety called “Lapins”. Cherries contain anthocyanins, the red pigment in berries. Cherry anthocyanins have been shown to reduce pain and inflammation. Anthocyanins are also potent antioxidants. In addition, they appear to significantly lower blood levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. Cherries are considered a warm food and are great for increasing circulation. They make an excellent detoxifying food, helping the body eliminate uric acid and cleanse the kidneys. They contain ellagic acid, an anticancer compound. So, not only do they taste fabulous, they are also very healthy. A word of caution, cherries are considered to be part of the “Dirty Dozen” when it comes to fruits and vegetables that have been found to contain the highest levels of pesticide residues. So, it is vitally important to choose only organically grown cherries. They may be considerably more expensive, but your health is worth every extra penny you spend.
Fresh cherries are best stored in a bag in the fruit drawer of your refrigerator. They can also be pitted and frozen into serving sized portions. Fruit leathers made with cherries or combined with other fruits are an excellent way to prolong cherry season. Try these tasty Raw Almond Cheery Macroons - Sandra Butler
