Healthy Cooking Class #1

Saturday, June 04, 2016
It's Saturday! You know what that means, we are cooking up a storm here in Pasadena! We had the honor of having Vicki Woolman, PCRM Certified Food for Life Instructor, teach her first of three classes on healthy cooking here at the store. All of the recipes were budget conscious, time efficient and most importantly they all supported a low-fat, plant-based diet!  

Our favorite was the "Yes-You-Can Black Bean Chili":

  • 1 25 oz. low-sodium black beans, drained, liquid reserved
  • 1 16 oz. jar of low sodium salsa
  • 8 oz. frozen corn
  • freshly squeezed lime juice
  • fresh cilantro
  • hot sauce
  • guacamole

Mix beans, corn, and salsa in a 5 qt pot. Add reserved liquid to reach desired consistency. The more liquid, the "soupier" the chili will become. Cook over medium heat for 20 minutes. Add optional toppings just before serving.
