  • 1 diced green pepper
  • 3 carrots chopped
  • 3 celery stalks chopped
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 C chopped tomatoes or 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 3 T tomato paste, (optional)

  • 4 C cooked kidney, pinto or black beans, or a mix, or 3 cans of beans, rinsed
  • 1 T soy sauce
  • 1 C fresh or frozen corn
  • Added leafy greens like spinach
  • Celantro (optional)




Sauté onion and garlic in a pan coated with a bit of orange-carrot juice, broth or other liquid until soft.
