Spicy Butternut Squash & Black Bean Stew With Kale

Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, coarsely chopped (about 1- ½ cups)
3 large cloves garlic, coarsely chopped (about 2- ½ tsp.)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
4 cups butternut squash, cut into approx. ½"- ¾" pieces)
1 1/2 teaspoons ground chili powder (I used chipotle, of course!)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon Worcestershire (I used Oxford Falls vegan)
14 1/2 oz can diced tomatoes (with juice)
29 oz can (or 2 15.5 oz cans) black beans, drained& rinsed
1 small bunch kale, chopped (about 3- 4 cups, packed)

Preparation

1
Heat the oil in a 6 quart pot, over medium-high heat.
2
Add the onion, garlic, and salt.
3
Sauté until the onion begins to turn golden-colored, about 5-6 minutes.
4
Add the butternut squash, chili powder, cinnamon, cumin, and Worcestershire sauce.
5
Stir to combine.
6
Pour in the diced tomatoes with their juice, the black beans, and the vegetable broth.
7
Stir thoroughly and bring to a boil. When the stew begins to boil, reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until the squash becomes tender, about 10-15 minutes.
8
Taste and adjust seasonings, if necessary.
9
Add the chopped kale to the pot and stir to combine completely. (If you prefer, you can substitute Swiss chard)
10
Allow to simmer for an additional 3-4 minutes, till the kale wilts but retains a bright green color.
