White Bean and Escarole Chili

Inspired by similar dishes in Italian cuisine, this comforting dish will have you coming back for 2nds. Blending the flavors from Italy with regions like Mexico and Ethiopia, we get amazing flavors and textures to spice up your dinner routine. Teff is a grain from Ethiopia and it packs quite a nutritional punch when compared to other grains like wheat or rice. Naturally gluten-free, teff is high in amino acids, higher in fiber than wheat (5g compared to 1g), and a very good source iron and calcium. At 20-40% resistant starch it is very good for your digestive system and a delicious way to get more fiber into your diet. Something most Americans are lacking. Very small compared to most grains making it much quicker to cook.
