Bumblebee Stew #Vegan #Vegetarian

This is vegetarian, because I topped it with cheese. If I hadn’t, or if I were lucky enough to have Daiya cheese shreds available to me, it would be vegan.

Bumblebee Stew

  • olive oil
  • chili powder
  • cumin
  • onion powder
  • garlic powder
  • salt
  • flour
  • can black beans, undrained
  • can corn, undrained
  • can chopped tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
  • cilantro
  • semi-sweet chocolate

Heat the oil and toast the spices. Stir in the flour, adding more oil, if necessary. Add the vegetables, cilantro, and chocolate and heat until thickened. Serve over rice.

Of course, you can use fresh onions and garlic.


I’m posting at Fatal Foodies today about roast squash. Also yum.




I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      The version I had in a restaurant was a little sweet. They put shredded chicken and honey in it.

      SO GOOD! Maybe honey would un-heartburn it? Some recipes call for honey.
