Hearty Pasta Bean StewHearty Pasta Bean Stew is this weeks recipe from the Slender For Life™ Recipes. This is one of our favorite meals on these cold winter nights. It’s healthy comfort food that delights the taste buds and warms the soul. We first found this recipe at one of my favorite plant based recipe sites, Fat Free Vegan. Slender For Life™ weight loss hypnosis clients have all heard me say that Fat Free Vegan is a great recipe resource for anyone who is looking for healthy meals.


Hearty Pasta Bean Stew

2 cups penne or rotini pasta, cooked until still very al dente
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 carrots, chopped in 1inch chunks
2 parsnips, chopped in 1 inch chunks (or more carrots or rutabagas if you don’t like parsnips)
1 bell pepper, chopped in big pieces
2 cups frozen corn
Sliced mushrooms
1 large can tomatoes, coarsely chopped
2 cans beans (black, kidney, chickpeas…whatever you like best), rinsed
½ cup broth
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Mixed herbs to taste
1 tablespoon corn starch

Cook the pasta. Saute the onions and garlic until soft. Add the carrots & parsnips and sauté about 5 minutes, add the rest of the vegetables (you can vary these to what you like or have on hand). Cook for 5 minutes. Add tomatoes & juice, broth, paprika, soy sauce, herbs, beans and cooked pasta. Cook until veggies are tender (about 10-15 minutes.) Take a bit of the sauce from the stew and mix with cornstarch. Add this mixture back to the stew and cook for a few more minutes until the sauce thickens.

This is pretty hearty and easier to make than the long list of ingredients implies.
