Indian Stew

Fall is here! My favorite season. Football parties, the return of TV series, scarecrows, and the start of the holidays. Not to mention, the leaves turn rich colors and everybody just seems to be in such a good mood. Regarding weather- warm days and brisk evenings. Which brings me to this hot “Indian” Stew. Perfect to eat on one of those said chilly nights while watching Supernatural 🙂 

Indian Stew 

Ingredients:

1 cup arborio rice

1 tbsp unrefined coconut oil

1 large onion, chopped

3 garlic cloves, minced

2 tbsp curry powder

1 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp turmeric

1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp cayenne

1 cup chicken broth

1 28oz can plum tomatoes with juice

1 15oz can cannelloni beans, rinsed and drained (Note: chickpeas would make it a more “Indian” dish. I, however, do not like the taste, so I always use cannelloni beans as a sub.)

1 cup frozen corn

1 tbsp lime juice

salt and pepper to taste

cilantro

Directions:

Cook rice according to box instructions. Meanwhile, in a large pot, heat oil. Add in onions and garlic cloves and sauté for 5 minutes. Add and mix in curry, ginger, cumin, turmeric, pepper flakes, cinnamon, and cayenne. Stir for 1 minute. Add in broth, tomatoes, cannelloni beans, and corn. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes. Take off stove and stir in lime juice, salt and pepper. Serve stew over rice and garnish with cilantro.
