Quick & Easy White Bean Tomato Chili

Print

This White Bean Salbitxada Chili is the most comforting, filling dish to eat on a quiet night in. Salbitxada is a delicious Catalan piquant tomato-based sauce, traditionally eaten with calçots, a special kind of green onion from Cataluña, in season from November to April. When I lived in Barcelona, I loved the ritual of eating these huge char-grilled vegetables with my hands, dipped in salbitxada or romesco sauce, accompanied by friends.

I thought this would be the perfect inspiration for a hearty, comforting bowl of spicy (but not super hot) homemade chili. The tomatoes, red peppers, almonds, chili and beans star in this high flavored recipe.

Hearty, comforting homemade chili salbitxada, a delicious Catalan piquant tomato-based sauce. Almonds and white beans star in this high flavored recipe.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

White beans are packed with folate, vitamin B1 (thiamin), potassium, magnesium, and iron. It’s an easy bean to cook with and can be a healthy substitute for the type of starch in potatoes. It's high in protein and low on the glycemic index.
