Food as MedicineSM TipBoiling or microwaving the cauliflower reduces the body-readiness of its isothiocyanates, which are the detoxifying, cancer fighting compounds in cauliflower that make it today's "food as medicine" ingredient.
Culinary Taste TipFor a little more heat, serve your stew with additional hot sauce.
Culinary Technique TipBuying the chicken boneless will help you make this easy to prepare.
Ingredients2 teaspoons extra light olive oil
1 cup chopped yellow onion
3/4 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs (raised without antibiotics such as Bell & Evans or Amish chicken brands)

2 cups (10 ounces) frozen butter beans or lima beans (no need to thaw)
1 (14.5 ounce) can fire roasted diced tomatoes, undrained

Comments on Melted Butter Bean, Cauliflower and Chicken Stew with Thyme and Tabasco
I'm confused about the Food as Medicine Tip. If boiling or microwaving the cauliflower reduces the detoxifying, cancer fighting compounds, why is cooking the cauliflower in this stew a good thing? Shouldn't we be eating the cauliflower raw in order for it to be considered food as medicine?
yeah, or at least throw the cauliflower in at the last minute. What about broccoli too? I would use broccoli in this and toss it in just before eating it.
It does seem inconsistent to give a recipe that contradicts the tip.
Made this last night and it was delicious! My 11 and 14 year olds both gobbled it up. I added a little ground chipotle for an extra kick and to suit my family's tastes. The great thing was I had almost all the ingredients in my pantry already.
Very nice! Used frozen cauliflower and canned butter beans. Ate it 4 days in a row without tiring of the taste!
