Bean & Vegetable Stew

I was going to post some tasty Banana Bars I made last week but got up this morning feeling we needed something healthy after our Superbowl fest last night. 

 

Bean & Vegetable Stew

 

½ onions chopped

1 cup carrot chopped

1 cup celery chopped

1 bell pepper chopped

2 Tablespoons chopped parsley

1 bunch of chopped green onions

 

Sauté all your veggies in 2 Tablespoons of olive oil

 

Salt & Pepper to taste (also can add a pinch of cayenne pepper)

1 clove chopped garlic or ½ teaspoon of powdered garlic

 

Italian flavor use 1 teaspoon of Italian Seasoning plus a pinch of crushed Rosemary OR

Mexican flavor use 1 1/2 teaspoon of Taco Seasoning (I like to add a bit more Cumin.)

 

Add:

1 19 oz. can of Black Beans (or bean of you liking)

1 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes

8 oz of chicken stock (I don’t always have chicken stock so I keep those cubed or powdered chicken base to use with water, but be careful they can be salty.)

 

Bring to a boil, turn it down and simmer for 20 minutes.

Great served over brown rice.
