What You’ll Need:
- Carrots/White Onions/ Celery
- Olive Oil
- 1 Can Diced Tomato (No salt added)
- Cumin/Coriander/Salt/Pepper/Cayenne Pepper/Dried Oregano
- Jalapeno/ Sliced and Diced
- Black + Kidney Beans
Saute carrots, celery, onion w/ extra virgin olive oil (can use coconut oil as substitute.) Add water, zucchini, diced tomato, jalapeno, beans into pot. Add salt, pepper, cumin, coriander, cayenne pepper and dried oregano (to taste). I added fresh cilantro into the pot as well. I am not big on measurments, but don’t go too crazy before the chili has had a chance to simmer- the flavors will taste better after it is done cooking- and remember you can always add. After you add everything into a large pot let the chili simmer for about 15-20 min. Add fresh cilantro and lime for garnish. If desired you can always add cheese/meat. Let me tell you, it was delish w/o any dairy or meat product!
*CUMIN: Cumin is extremely good for digestion and related problems. The very smell (aroma) of it, which comes from an aromatic organic compound called Cuminaldehyde, the main component of its essential oil, activates our salivary glands in our mouth (the mouth watering flavor), facilitating the primary digestion of the food.
*CORIANDER: The health benefits of coriander include treatment of swellings, high cholesterol levels, diarrhea, Mouth ulcers, anemia, digestion, menstrual disorders, small pox, eye care, conjunctivitis, skin disorders, blood sugar disorders, etc.
