Quinoa Chili for the People


Another chili! I've been stoked on soups, stews, and chili this past few months. Southern California has been uncharacteristically wet and cold this past winter, so warm bowls of yummy always comfort the body and soul, but now it's spring so it's time to lighten it up a bit. But, I'm not quite ready to give up on the bowls of comfort quite yet! This hearty, yet light, chili is chock-full of veggies (You can literally swap out any seasonal veggies when making this!), beans, quinoa, and hominy.

Butternut Squash Chili


Most of y'all know by now that I work at Tanaka Farms. I've been there about four years now, and the longer I am there, the more I love it. Tanaka Farms is a family owned and operated farm. Farmer Tanaka (a third generation Japanese-American, also known as Sansei) and his son Kenny (Yonsei) run the farm. Since working at the farm, I have learned so much about Japanese, as well as, Hawaiian culture!

One of my favorite bits of knowledge gained is "Chili & Rice." Just like it sounds, it's chili served over steamed rice! Using the farm's fresh produce, including some stellar butternut squash, I came up with this chili that we served at the Tanaka Grill over the holiday season. It was a big hit, and I ended up teaching a cooking class showing folks how to make it at the farm.
