This is my gluten free version of a white bean "chili" first posted by Giada de Laurentiis. The fennel seed gives the chili a lovely, unusual flavor.... my family LOVES this meal!

Ingredients

2 Tbsp
olive oil
1 large
onion
4 clove
garlic
2 lb
ground turkey or chicken
1 tsp
salt (more or less to taste)
2 Tbsp
cumin
1 Tbsp
fennel seed
1 Tbsp
oregano, dried
1 Tbsp
chili powder
1/2 Tbsp
old bay seasoning
3 Tbsp
sweet rice flour (or other gluten free flour)
2 15-oz can(s)
cannellini beans (or other small white bean)
1 pkg
baby spinach, pre-washed
4 to 5 c
gluten free chicken broth
fresh ground black pepper, to taste
parmesan cheese, if desired
chopped fresh parsley

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes.
2
Add the garlic to the onion and oil and cook for another 30 seconds or so.
3
Add the ground turkey, 1 teaspoon salt, cumin, fennel seeds, oregano, chili powder, and Old Bay. Cook, stirring frequently, until the meat is cooked through, about 8 minutes.
4
Stir the sweet rice flour into the cooked meat mixture. Add the beans, spinach, and chicken stock. Bring to a gentle boil, scraping up the brown bits that cling to the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.
5
Immediately reduce heat until the mixture is gently simmering. Cover with lid slightly tilted to allow steam to escape and continue to simmer for 45-60 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has reduced by about half and the chili has thickened.
6
Season with more salt if needed and fresh ground pepper to taste just before serving.
7
Ladle the chili into serving bowls. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and chopped parsley. This is a great gluten free comfort meal, especially served with gluten free corn bread on a cold winter's night!
