Today I am using some different combinations.
Start with a teaspoon of olive oil and a small cube of ginger and a clove of garlic chopped well.

Simmer the ginger and garlic for about 5 minutes and then add black beans that you have rinsed and drained, and add veggies that you like!
I chose a chopped ripe tomato, 5 sliced mushrooms, 1 white onion chopped well along with a cup of chopped spinach. For some spice, I added a teaspoon of Turmeric and cumin at the end.

Meatless Chili with Grains

Meatless Chili

I make the best tasting chili without the meat!

Start out with some grains. I use a mixture. Today I prepare for the week my grains because I use them in different recipes.

GRAINS:  Look for No GMO grains

You cook grains just like rice (the grain most people know about) I use all kinds of grains; quinoa, barley, amaranth, and split peas and lentils (which are legumes) all my favorites! Remember that you need to rinse grains well before cooking to get rid of any stones or critters.
