The July/August edition of Chatelaine Magazine featured six recipes from female, Canadian, Indigenous chefs. The very first one looked simple, healthy and meatless — urging me to give it a try.
‘Three Sisters Casserole’ is so named because of the traditional indigenous practice of growing squash, corn and beans together “with the cornstalks holding up the beans while the squash protects the roots at the base” (Chatelaine, July/August 2021, pg. 79).
Designed by Montreal Chef, Norma Condo, I was delighted to discover that this dish was as easy to prepare as it looked. In its simplicity, it was also incredibly delicious. I served it over rice, with a side of bannock (with a drizzle of honey). You can find the casserole recipe here and the bannock recipe here.
After a month-long “get-out-of-lockdown, visit-every-(vaccinated)-person-you-know, and throw-all-healthy-eating- habits-to-the-wind,” Richard and I were happy to settle down to a nourishing, low-fat meal. We both gave this dish two thumbs up and will make this recipe again — definitely with the rice, and double-definitely with the bannock!
