The Daring Denver Green Chili Stew by @bestofvegan


To celebrate our launch into Whole Foods Market, we’ve teamed up with foodies from all across the country to create dishes inspired by the cities they live in. Next up is our friend Sam Moorman from @bestofvegan who has created a hearty, smoky, delicious stew with hatch green chilis and Original Daring Pieces. It’s like a giant hug from the mile high city.

A note from Sam Moorman from @bestofvegan

I love comfort food–and since going vegan 2 years ago, I’ve always been on the lookout for plant-based and vegan options to help my transition without feeling major fomo. After trying just about all of the vegan chicken options, I gotta say Daring plant-based pieces win by a landslide. That’s what inspired me to make this hearty and comforting Green Chili Stew–with smoky hatch green chilis (a southwestern staple) and Original Daring Pieces. It’s like a giant hug from Denver in a bowl.

Step 1

In a deep pan, heat the stove to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Add olive oil and sauté garlic, onions and Daring Original Pieces with a little salt and pepper until golden brown.

Step 3

Add in the rest of the ingredients to the pan (except the veggie broth and rice) and sauté until the veggies soften.

Step 4

Pour in some veggie broth, add in the rice and stir. Simmer with the lid on at low to medium heat for about 10-12 minutes.

Serve in bowls and optionally garnish with fresh sliced avocado, vegan sour cream, crispy rolled tortillas, sliced lime, red pepper flakes, jalapeños and radishes.
