Bastyr Chef Cooks Up a Winner at Bothell Chilifest

Bastyr University has won grants from the National Institutes of Health and awards from the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, but we know a truly prestigious competition when we see one.

Bah, Bah Bean Chili from Jim Watkins

Like a chili cook-off.

So we're proud to announce that University Director of Food Services Jim Watkins took home the Green Bean Award at the fifth annual Bothell Chilifest on October 13, 2011.

Watkins' creation, "Bah, Bah Bean Chili" featured the organic, whole-food ingredients that distinguish the University Dining Commons. The dish's funny name comes from one of two unique ingredients that reportedly wowed judges: ground lamb. The other "secret" ingredient? Dark chocolate.

Like all the meat served in the dining commons, the lamb is organic and responsibly sourced, which helped Watkins win the award designated for earth-friendly ingredients. (Bah, Bah Bean Chili also features plenty of vegetables.)

Chilifest is hosted by Evergreen Washelli and sponsored by the Greater Bothell Chamber of Commerce to collect nonperishable food for the nonprofit Hopelink.

The Bastyr Dining Commons is open to the public and serves healthy, whole-food meals seven days a week. Check out the weekly menu.
