Green Chilli with Portobello Mushrooms


    Green Chilli with Portobello Mushrooms

    Serves 8


    Traditionally, a green chilli is served with pork, but in this recipe, portobello mushrooms provide the meatiness and an additional layer of flavour.

    2 medium onions, diced
    2 lbs (1 kg) green tomatoes, halved
    3 jalapeños, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
    4 garlic cloves, finely chopped or grated
    2 tsp (10 ml) ground cumin
    3 Tbsp (60 ml) extra-virgin olive oil
    8 portobello mushrooms, diced
    1 cup (250 ml) salt-reduced chicken stock
    2 cups (500 ml) cooked haricot beans
    Juice of 1 lime
    1 large green capsicum, cored, seeded and chopped finely for garnish

    Preheat oven to 200 C.

    In large bowl toss onions, tomatoes, jalapeños, garlic and cumin with 1 1/2 Tbsp (30 ml) oil and spread on baking sheet. Roast until soft and starting to brown, about 20 to 30 minutes, stirring a few times during roasting.

    Meanwhile, in large frying pan, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat and sauté mushrooms until golden on all sides. Reserve.

    Pour tomato mixture into Dutch oven and, using potato masher or back of wooden spoon, press down on tomatoes to release juices. It will look thick and soupy. Add chicken stock, beans, lime juice and mushrooms. Cook over medium heat for 15 minutes or until heated through.

    Smoky Lentil Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

    This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
