Hold the Meat
Preparing meatless organic chilies is now as easy as opening a custom-made bisphenol-A-free can. Eden Foods has introduced four 100 percent organic varieties of meatless chili featuring beans sourced from local organic family farms; real whole grain quinoa, spelt, kamut, and barley; and maitake and shiitake gourmet mushrooms imported from Japan. Shoppers can choose from Black Bean & Quinoa Chili, Great Northern & Barley Chili, Kidney Bean & Kamut Chili, and Pinto Bean & Spelt Chili. Not only does the pareve product line contain complete protein and fiber from the whole grain-and-bean combination, but it also boasts 50 percent less sodium than other brands, according to Clinton, Mich.-based Eden, the largest independent maker of dry grocery organic specialty food. Suggested retail prices range from $3.19 to $3.69. For additional information, visit www.edenfoods.com.
