This Week’s FRESH Recipe: Bundle up with a hearty bowl of Black Bean, Kale and Butternut Squash Chili!

As Restoration’s works toward our mission to disrupt and close the racial wealth gap, we recognize the disparities in accessing healthy food and improving the health of our community. Our Center for Healthy Neighborhoods works to improve community health and wealth by building a Central Brooklyn food system that reflects the needs of our community: good food jobs and quality local food in our neighborhoods.

As a part of our new FRESH series, Restoration will be sharing information on where you can access affordable/free, fresh, and locally grown produce here in Central Brooklyn and culinary tips to help you prepare your favorite seasonal produce.

Fall is here and so are longer nights and cooler temperatures. As our socially distant park picnics and barbeques come to a close, many people are looking for indoor activities to do. Trying new recipes in the kitchen featuring your favorite seasonal produce is the perfect fall activity.

This week, Beautifully Fed put together this recipe for a Black Bean, Kale and Butternut Squash Chili. Perfect for vegetarians or people wanting to add more veggies to their diet. You can also try the Chili over Rice and Quinoa; learn how to make the best fluffy rice from Maya at Beautifully Fed!
