Lima Bean, Shiitake & Broccoli Chili

Nutrition Info





35 – 40 Minutes


I’ve been making chili like this for years now and it never fails to satisfy. It’s the perfect meal to make in large batches in a big pot but this single serving version works just as well from the wok.


It’s best to use your own diced tomatoes, even better if you remove the skin first, but canned diced tomatoes also work just fine. Bear in mind that tin cans can leach chemicals into the product!

To prepare your own tomatoes, slice off the stalk ends. Bring a pot of water to the boil, then carefully drop the tomatoes into the boiling water. After 10 – 30 seconds or so (experience will improve this judgement a lot!) the skins will begin to wrinkle and split. Remove the tomatoes from the water with a sieve spoon or something similar and place in cool water. Once cooled, use your fingers to ‘slide’ off the skins of the tomatoes. If they’ve been in the water the right amount of time the skins should peel off easily. Now chop and dice your tomatoes. Make sure to save the juice!
