Black Bean Chili and More

It’s been a while since we’ve posted but we’ve got a good excuse – we’ve been spending a lot of time testing recipes for Robin Robertson’s next cookbook. Meanwhile we just picked up a copy of her newest release, Cook the Pantry, and are looking forward to trying many of the quick and easy recipes there. Tonight we made Everyone’s Favorite Black Bean Chili and it was indeed a favorite. It was so quick to make I also took the time to make guacamole and corn bread. The recipe is here. We didn’t use soy curls but did add lentils. The addition of barbecue sauce gave it a subtle sweetness that was quite nice. Our 7-year-old loved it.

And we’re already anticipating Robin’s next book because the recipes we’ve tested so far have all been fabulous. To wit:
