Happy St. Patty’s day party people!
Some of you may know who Dr. Joel Furhman is from his books, documentary appearances, and Dr. Oz — but this guy has got it right when it comes to nutrition (in my eyes). He’s created a new type of diet — the nutritarian lifestyle — and I’m loving it.
Soo this past week, he was sharing some of his favorite recipes and this Goji Berry 3-Bean Chili was a star. So obvi. I had to try it — I wasn’t sure how the goji flavor would combine with cumin and chili powder but it was magical. It was a spicy & sweet flavor combo that I will def. be enjoying for a long time to come…it’s that good.
Recipe from Dr. Oz & Joel Furhman — kudos!
3 cups diced plum tomatoes or 1 (28-oz) can no-salt-added or low-sodium plum tomatoes
1 lb frozen broccoli, thawed and chopped
10 oz frozen chopped onions, thawed
2 1/2 cups corn, fresh or frozen
1/2 cup goji berries
2 large zucchini, diced
4 oz chopped mild green chilies
4 tsp chili powder, or more to taste
2 tsp cumin
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups cooked pinto beans or 1 (15-oz) can no-salt-added or low-sodium pinto beans, drained
1 1/2 cups cooked black beans or 1 (15-oz) can no-salt-added or low-sodium black beans, drained
1 1/2 cups cooked red beans or 1 (15-oz) can no-salt-added or low-sodium red beans, drained
Cover and simmer all ingredients, except precooked (or canned) beans, for 20 minutes. Add beans and heat through.
I sprinkled some goji & homemade guacamole for some added crunch & creaminess!!
This Goji Berry Chili is packed with fiber, slowly digestible starches, and phytonutrient-rich greens. An added bonus is the antioxidant filled & flavorful superfood — the Goji Berry — this is the star of the dish in my book!
The great thing about this dish is it is sooo filling and soo tasty — try a pot full of this for your St. Patty’s day din din or for meatless monday :] it’s a win!
