I got a crock-pot from my parents as a holiday gift this year, and this is the recipe I chose to inaugurate it. It turned out very well, so I'm reposting it here [personal profile] jjhunter's encouragement. I've also posted it to my personal journal here, where the comments now include various useful pieces of advice and information about cooking with dried beans.

Squash and Black Bean Chili, from Judith Finlayson, The Healthy Slow Cooker: more than 100 recipes for health and wellness (Robert Rose: Toronto, 2006), pp. 288–9.


As written, this is a slow cooker/crock pot recipe, although it could probably work as a conventional stovetop recipe too, with appropriate cooking technique/time adjustments. It's vegetarian and vegan, although it includes an easy non-vegetarian variation if you're so inclined. It requires some stovetop pre-cooking and some heavy-duty chopping (unless you begin with pre-chopped squash, in which case it doesn't require much chopping at all).

Last night's Christmas dinner went off pretty successfully, so I thought I'd share the recipes. Sorry, I forgot to take pics. We're a little constrained, because our group contained a vegetarian (me) and a celiac (my wife), so there had to be accomodations.

Our menu was:
  • Roast beef with mustard sauce and parsnips
  • Stuffing risotto
  • Mashed sweet potatoes with smoked gouda and chipotle goat crema
  • Green beans sauteed in butter
  • Dessert: Fruitcake bread pudding and chocolate-cherry-coconut clafouti
