Three Bean Stew

   In winter, I want warm, hearty dishes. I hate being cold, so I feel like this makes my body think it's actually warmer than it is. When I saw this recipe and decided to make it, I didn't realize how much it would taste like chili. I was surprised how filling it was since it didn't have any meat. I think you could easily add ground turkey or even chicken for extra heartiness if you wanted, but you really don't need it! We had a side of cornbread muffins.

1 Tbl olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 Tbl minced garlic
28oz diced fire roasted tomato
1tsp cumin
1tsp chili powder
1 can butter beans, rinsed & drained
1 can black beans, rinsed & drained
1 can kidney beans, rinsed & drained
4 cups chicken broth
1/4 c chopped cilantro
1 c frozen chopped spinach
  • Heat oil over medium high. Add onion and cook until softened. Add garlic.
  • Add tomatoes, cumin, and chili powder. Simmer for 5 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile, place 1-1/2 cups beans and 1/2 cup broth in blender. Add cilantro and puree.
  • Add beans, broth, and bean puree to pot. Simmer.
  • Add in spinach and simmer until heated. 
  • Serve with a dash of red pepper if you want added heat.
