Simply delicious and easy. Inspired by my trip to Greece.
3 tsp olive oil
2 medium size red onions, chopped.
4 carrots, peeled and sliced.
4 gloves of garlic, minced.
1 medium green and red pepper each, thinly sliced.
1 can of diced tomatoes (no added salt variety).
2 Roma tomatoes, diced.
2 green chilies, thinly chopped.
1-2 tbsp of Cilantro (fresh), chopped.
1 tsp of red chili flakes (to taste).
Salt to taste.
- Heat oil on medium heat (do not burn) and add onions. Saute until medium brown. Add carrots and garlic. Brown the carrots too-it makes them sweeter when caramelized. Cook until carrots start to sweat (release some water-approx. 10 to 12 minutes).
- Stir in peppers. Cook for 2 minutes.
- Add tomatoes and beans.
- Add chilies, cilantro, chili flakes and salt to taste. Stir. Cover for 10 minutes.
- Serve with your favorite starch (quinoa, rice, pasta or bread) or have on it’s own with a spoon. Bon Appetite!
