#3 Hearty Bean Stew

OK...I am a week and a half into this project and I have only posted 2 recipes! Yikes! The good news is that I have been cooking and adding recipes to Macgourmet...just not posting.

Anyway I found this recipe in a 2006 Taste of Home magazine (February/March, 2006, p. 6). If you ever want to subscribe to a cooking magazine I would certainly recommend Taste of Home. The website is also really great: http://www.tasteofhome.com/

This was a great recipe to enjoy on a cold day at the lake!

  • 1-½ cups chopped onions
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (28 ounces) Hunt’s® Original Diced Tomatoes, drained
  • 3 large carrots, chopped
  • 3 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1-¼ cups beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) garbanzo beans or chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
1. In a large saucepan, saute onions in oil until tender; add the garlic, cook 1 minute longer.
2. Add the tomatoes, carrots, celery, broth and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
3. Stir in the beans, tomato paste, chili powder and pepper. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
(Serves 6)

I didn't have celery so I added peas instead! Feel free to add or substitute ingredients.
