A mild chili featuring the famous Three Sisters of Native America: maize, beans and squash. In our version, Anson Mills heirloom posole is nixtamalized (cooked with slaked lime to release B Vitamins) and then simmered until tender in a savory and lightly spiced tomato base with white butter beans from Iacopi Farm in Half Moon Bay and zucchini. When you eat this stew, celebrate Native American wisdom! Planting these three crops together provides benefits to each: corn provides a climbing structure for the beans, which add nitrogen to the soil, while the squash leaves shade the roots of the corn and the beans and prevent soil evaporation.
Ingredients: zucchini,* posole,* butter beans, onions,* crushed tomatoes,* olive oil,* garlic,* cilantro,* Celtic sea salt, apple cider vinegar,* coriander,* cumin,* paprika,* smoked paprika,* cinnamon,* chipotle powder,* cloves,* bay leaves, wild-harvested kombu sea vegetable (a small amount cooked with the beans to add nutrition and aid digestability) (* = organic)

Escarole is one of the classic and deeply nourishing greens that is prized in Europe but sadly lacking in the American diet. Escarole's tender leaves have a hint of bitterness which is balanced in this dish by braising it in tomato broth with bay leaves for a rich and delicious "brodo." It is finished with grated Parmigiano Reggiano and black pepper. Add bone broth and re-season for a soup, or try serving it over polenta, rice, or pasta. Also great with Italian sausage or your favorite white fish.
