"This spicy bean stew reheats well so it can be made ahead and refrigerated until needed for mealtime. Add meat for an omni-version."

  1. Tried this on a whim and i must say it is excellent. Definitely a unique flavor and something i will be making again!
  2. Delicious! The combination of ingredients is fantastic, very flavorful and filling! Leftovers froze well. Thanks for posting... it's definitely a new favorite.
  3. Oh wow - what a great stew! I halved the recipe and left out the onions, otherwise made just as specified. This stew has such a great and unusual combination of flavors, textures, and colors. It needs no meat - it's very filling and full of flavor. I served this over brown rice, with cornbread. Really enjoyed this - thanks for sharing this recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2009


<p>I love, love, love to cook. Most of all I love to cook for friends and family because it is such an awesome feeling to bring the people that mean the most to me through such an essential ingredient for life... FOOD! I am a vegan the switch opened up the world of cooking in a way I never imagined! People constantly ask me 'what do you eat?' and I can confidently tell them that if they were to leave meat and dairy behind they would find an enormous world of food out there that they have never heard of! And it is all more delicious and nourishing than animal products. My ultimate goal is to shake my 9 to 5 office job and become a caterer or open my own restaurant and I am forever dreaming of my big lottery win that will allow me to do this.</p>
