Healthy Weeknight Meals: Black Bean and Kabocha Squash Stew

This recipe comes from Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Diet. Originally made with black soy beans, I couldn’t find any, so went with black turtle beans instead.

This is not a quick meal to make start to finish after work. In order to make this after work, I had pre-diced the onion, pre-cut the squash and was using beans I had already cooked (and frozen). That all done, it still took an hour. On the other hand, with ingredients prepped ahead of time, the hour it took wasn’t bad. It was mostly just the actual cooking time.

A rich and hearty stew. Definitely good fall food!

The Kind Diet is another cookbook I’ve owned for awhile yet not cooked from. I did read it (it’s really more of a book than a cookbook, I suppose), but never got around to making anything from it. If you know anything about the book- this is from the “vegan” section, rather than the “superhero” section. I’ll be looking at that in greater detail soon, though!

Also, I love it when you follow me on Facebook or Twitter!
