The next time you get fresh cilantro here’s a way to save what you don’t use up. Puree it with some water and freeze in ice cube trays. Make sure to use the stems because there’s tons of flavor in there too. Not only will it keep you from throwing it out, but you’ll have some on hand to throw in a soup, stew or  a pot of beans whenever you want!

Pumpkin Chickpea Chili by Allyson Kramer

Serves: 10

  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ green bell pepper, diced
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil
  • 1 cup (130 g) frozen or fresh corn
  • 1 can (28 ounces, or 793 g) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 ounces 420 g) pumpkin puree
  • 1 can (15 ounces, or 420 g) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (15 ounces, or 420 g) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 to 3 teaspoons chili powder, to taste
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 cup (235 ml) vegetable broth
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • Black pepper to taste
  • ¼ to ½ cup (4 to 8 g) minced cilantro, for garnish
  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute the onion, garlic, green pepper, and salt in olive oil for 10 to 15 minutes or until tender.
  2. Stir in the remaining ingredients, increase the heat to high, and bring to a boil.
  3. Immediately reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until heated through. Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve hot.
Variations of this chili can be created by using different types of winter squash in place of pumpkin. Roasted and pureed acorn, butternut, or delicate varieties work well.

    Gluten-free cooking is new to me, so what I look for is not having to buy a bunch of exotic flours right off the bat. Just dipping my little toe in for now.

    I agree with Sara. I like to avoid the exotic flours, even though I’ve been gluten free for years. Whipping up some GF oat flour from my oatmeal in the food processor is about as far as I want to go.

    I look for one that does not have too many (not more than a 4:1) added starches and very little to no sugar, even if it is natural like honey or maple syrup. My mother doesn’t like to eat even honey so I try to minimize the use of it- after all, food tastes best eaten together :)

  4. Deb E says

    Yes, it’s important that the ingredients list is not too long and complicated. I’d love it to be quick and easy to put together. If possible too, not too expensive to create.

    i look for ingredients that are easy to find – it’s 45 minutes to a decent grocery store – and a recipe that will appeal to children, cause there’s no point if they won’t even try it.
