Vegetarian Chilli with Mixed Nuts Paste

Hello Friends,


It looks like these days, all I am doing is cook from other blogs as I am so sick of my own cooking, know what I mean. Anyways, I am doing that as I am getting some really delicious recipe and great flavors and all are keepers.


For example, this one, Vegetarian Chilli with Mixed Nuts Paste from Joanne's blog (She has a different name though, but I thought this was more appropriate for me), which was something now I am going to prepare often.  You have to visit her blog for many more such recipes.


There are just few changes that I did, so, I am only going to mention the changes and not repeating her recipe here. Please visit her blog for the recipe.




Instead of using pinto and red kidney bean mix like she did, I used a packet of mixed beans I got from Indian store, which had dry yellow peas, dry green peas, red kidney beans, black-eye bean, dry black chickpea, whole green moong bean and may be 2 more (I don't remember their names). I soaked the beans overnight and pressure-cooked them with salt for 15 minutes and that made the process quicker than stove top cooking for an hour or so. As, she suggested I used a mix of Cashew, Pistachio and Pine nut for the nut paste, but personal opinion, I will skip pine nuts next time. I think it is totally me as I am not that acquainted with the taste of ground pine nuts, though I do enjoy them in my pesto pasta.


I enjoyed this as soup with a toasted bread, but my hubby and son wanted to eat it like a curry and enjoyed it that way. But, whatever your method is, it is sure super delicious and can you be believe how much protein it has? For a vegetarian like me, it is just perfect and it is so comforting to eat it. I also enjoyed it as my breakfast (without bread) the next day.


So, get creative with your serving ideas and enjoy this super delicious chili. Sorry for the bad picture, I was in hurry and did not get a good one.

That's all for now. Take care till next post.

Protein packed dish, love the addition of nuts. But I am on your side on pine nuts, they taste great with pesto but one really has to get acquired to the taste in other dishes.

Looks so yum! I love the addition of nuts here.
