Fun With Favorite Recipes - 31 Mar 2006

Going vegan many years ago opened up a whole new exciting world of cooking that Frank and I are still exploring.

Today I’ll just touch on a couple of recent additions to our very large repertoire of culinary endeavors.

One of my “comfort foods” is chili. And one of my favorite chili recipes features sweet potatoes:

Chili – Small Red Bean and Sweet Potato:

2 lbs. Small Red Beans, dry
2 lbs. Sweet Potatoes
1 - 28-oz. can Crushed Tomatoes
2 Onions, medium size
5-6 Garlic, cloves
1-2 Chipotle Peppers
1/4 cup Molasses, unsulphured
2 tbsp. Chili Powder
2 tbsp. Cumin, ground
2 tbsp. Paprika
1 tsp. Cinnamon, ground

One of the foods that we discovered after going vegan is the plantain; and just a few days ago, we decided to experiment by substituting plantain for sweet potato in our chili. It turned out to be yummy! (Nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?) For our Kidney Bean Plantain Chili recipe see:

Frank and I not only have lots of fun in our kitchen, we have the added joy of knowing we are doing our part in sparing animals from horrendous suffering and the environment from further degradation – as well as staying healthy ourselves.
 


"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
