Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili with Tomatillos

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili by Leslie Cerier

This sweet and spicy stew is a fun and unusual take on chili. And if you happen to have leftovers, it tastes even better a day or two later. Kelp may seem like an unusual ingredient here, but it has several benefits: it makes the beans more digestible, and it also contains flavor-enhancing compounds and loads of minerals and vitamins. Copyright © 2010 Gluten-Free Recipes for the Conscious Cook* by Leslie Cerier (New Harbinger, Inc).

Often, rice is served alongside burritos, but the combination of rice and beans wrapped inside the tortilla is quite satisfying.

Sesame-Ginger Tofu and Broccoli Stir-Fry

Sesame-ginger tofu and broccoli

This stir-fry is inspired by General Tso’s Tofu, but dispenses with the cornstarch-battered, deep-fried tofu. I’ve tried it that way and find this version, with pan-sautéed tofu, plenty of broccoli, and a savory, sweet, and spicy sauce even more appealing. It’s easy and fast, too.  more→
