Recipe: Hearty Vegan Chili

fullsizerenderHello everyone,

We’re well into soup season so I wanted to share my quick and easy hearty vegan chili recipe. There is nothing better than sitting down with a big, comforting bowl of chili on a bitter cold evening. And it is certainly cold in Cleveland!

This recipe calls for a few pantry staples, as well as some easy to find produce. I recommend making a big pot of this chili on Sunday or Monday and eating it throughout the week. This recipe keeps for about 7-10 days, and it tastes just as good as leftovers!

It’s so easy – just chop, sauté, and simmer your way to a delectable vegan chili. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Happy cooking! Cheers!

The only eggs I recall liking were these odd “scrambled eggs” that my mom made…in the microwave. I know, I know. Eggs in the microwave. I don’t know why she made them that way, and I don’t know why I liked them. I think it’s because it gave them a slightly firmer consistency.

Anyway, the point is, I never really liked eggs. So many pre-vegans are worried about missing all their old dairy favorites, but I never really had that problem. That said, I was never concerned with finding vegan alternatives. I’ve always loved a good tofu scramble since that doesn’t taste anything like eggs.

Today I want to share my review of a relatively new product in the vegan market – Follow Your Heart brand’s VeganEgg.

I first learned about companies attempting to produce the perfect “vegan egg” earlier this year when a flurry of articles related to Hampton Creek (and the “JustMayo” controversy) took over my Facebook newsfeed. While Hampton Creek is supposedly releasing their take on the “vegan egg” later this winter, Follow Your Heart beat them to the punch. Continue reading “Product Review: Follow Your Heart’s VeganEgg”
