A Brave New Chili

Our Health-e-Recipe for Chili with Walnuts is a one-pot recipe that shows how substituting healthier ingredients in standard recipes opens up delicious new worlds of taste.

In our healthy chili, walnuts are just the beginning, adding crunch and healthy omega-3 fats to cholesterol-lowering olive oil. Besides onion, brightly colored vegetables like carrot and yellow pepper offer protective compounds: antioxidants beta-carotene and vitamin C, as well as some potassium. Red kidney beans full of fiber and folate, tomatoes supplying the phytochemical lycopene and green parsley, rich in flavonoids, round out the chili. It’s also low in saturated fat thanks to ground turkey breast being substituted for the usual ground beef.

You’ll find similar one-pot meals that incorporate lots of cancer-fighting plant foods and less red meat in our popular New AmericanPlate brochure. Click here to subscribe to weekly Health-e-Recipes.
