Black Bean & Butternut Squash Chili

From Vegan Planet by Robin Robertson

Serves: 6 (or, in my case, two hungry people. Yes, it’s that good).

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 medium-size yellow onion, minced

1 garlic clove, minced (I usually use 3-4 cloves instead)

1 jalapeño (optional, but yes, I include), seeded and minced

One 14.5-ounce can plum tomatoes, drained and chopped

1 cup water

1 cup apple juice

1/4 cup tomato paste

2 tablespoons chili powder, or to your taste

1 teaspoon salt

1 medium-size butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/2-inch dice

3 cups cooked or two 15-ounce cans black beans, drained and rinsed

Process:

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and jalapeño (if using). Cover and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, water, apple juice, tomato paste, chili powder, salt, and squash and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer until the squash is tender, about 30 minutes.
  2. Add the beans, then taste and adjust the seasonings. Simmer, uncovered, for about 15 minutes to blend the flavors. Serve hot.
  3. Serve with a delicious piece of bread, crushed tortilla chips on top, or with sliced avocado. Yum!

I know that creativity can feel like an elusive skill that only certain people are born with. But I believe that we each have an intrinsic creative power that needs to be expressed in the world.
