I am always on the lookout for dishes that are full of food, that can be easily reheated, that are adapted to my dietary needs and, above all, that are incredibly delicious. Mainly because some of my friends are vegetarian or gluten-free. All the good news: this vegetarian chili checks every box.
And while finding a chili recipe that satisfies everyone (including carnivores!) Is nothing short of a miracle, it’s perhaps even more amazing to find cookware that meets all of your kitchen needs. Enter: the Staub 4-piece stackable. Whether I am using a Dutch oven to prepare one of my own favorite single-pot meals (including this chilli) or baking pasta brass, I love knowing that I have a set that I trust to make all my dinners — and breakfast and lunch — come true.
This sweet potato and black bean is on my short sweet list when I need to give dinner to a friend who is sick or has had a baby. It is packed with rich black beans, tasty vegetables and plenty of spices (plus all these superfoods) so no one will lose their meat. And did I mention the sheer amount of vegetable protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals in this bowl? I always make enough of this for family dinners, to give leftovers for lunch the next day and maybe even freeze a lot for a future meal.
If you know me, you know that I fall hard with appliances and tools which fix all the kitchen headaches. I love that this set can be a nest to fit into a neat pile, so you don’t have to give up precious storage space. It also comes ready to use for the entire set, so you don’t have to worry about pre-seasoning your pots and pans before putting these pieces to work. But here’s the starting point: because each piece has an undeniable enamel finish, you won’t have a problem moving it from the kitchen to the table. Be prepared for many a show stopper lunch come.
So when I want to send a little love to a friend in need of a hot meal, or when I need a quick, healthy (and easy) dinner, this vegetarian chili recipe is always my recommendation. And they are complementary to this dish: avocados, cheese, cilantro, green onions, lemons and tortilla chips are essential.
