Carrie’s Power Chili

    This chili is delicious and packed with protein, complex carbs and plenty of fiber. Also a great source of several minerals. Because I rarely really measure my ingredients when I try a new recipe, you may have to adjust the amounts a little 😉

    INGREDIENTS:

    1-1/2 pounds of lean, all natural-free range ground beef

    3 cloves of fresh chopped garlic

    1/2 medium onion chopped fine

    3/4 cup certified organic diced tomatoes in their juice

    398 ml of certified organic tomato sauce

    2 cups (approx) mixed soaked orange lentils, black beans, navy beans or split green peas

    2 tbsp ground flax seeds

    1 cup filtered, clean water

    1 tsp ground cumin or to taste

    1 tsp turmeric or to taste

    1/2 tsp sea salt with kelp

    1 tbsp chili powder or to taste

    dash of black pepper

    INSTRUCTIONS:

    1. Brown ground beef, onion, garlic in a stainless steel stock pot on med heat. (On another burner boil the lentils, beans and pea mix for approximately 25 minutes.)

    2. Reduce to low/med heat and add the diced tomatoes and tomato sauce. Add the hemp seeds, spices and stir. 

    3. Drain the lentils, beans and peas. Boil for 20-25 mins. Add to the chili, stir and cook for a few minutes. 

    4. Serve warm, garnish with fresh carrot shaves and parsley. Pair it with some cool watermelon, kiwi, pineapple or mango.
