Clay Pot Smoked Black Bean Stew

Clay Pot Smoked Black Bean Stew

Stew recipes are suitable for all VitaClay Models!

It's great to have some stew on hand for a quick meal or in-between meal snack. I love black bean stew because it's got a smoky, spicy flavor that really satisfies, without weighing me down like meat dishes. I periodically just like to have a light, vegetarian meal  to give my system a break. It makes me feel very nourished and clean.

This black bean stew is a great dish to make ahead on the weekend and then serve all weekÔÇösend it to school or work in lunches, and sip on it when you just want a little something to tide you over.

I love it with a dollop of sour cream and some scallions, because it adds a really great fresh flavor. You can even spoon some salsa in for a cool kick. And of course, if you want to dress it up as a full meal instead of a more vegetarian side, a little chopped chicken can go a long way in this dish.
