So little cooking! I can't help it. I am one person at home and I cook a lot at work, so my offerings at home are pretty sparse these days. This chili was fabulous... lentils and tvp were the protein source along with a bit of quinoa. I pureed almost an entire head of cilantro with some tomatoes to finish it off... topped with lime, tofu sour cream and more cilantro it was so satisfying. My kids love it too, which is why I make something like this weekly. My eldest son said that he never really craves chili, but when he eats it is is favorite food. hehe... I love that kid.
To compliment the chili, I made some herbed corny soda bread... I used white whole wheat flour and it was great. It was a nice change from straight cornbread or muffins...
Forgive the blur... the lighting really sucked that day.. These are fat free/low sugar chocolate cupcakes ready to go in the oven... They were much better than I expected..
I made them to test the frosting. It is a raw cashew based chocolate frosting... I used mostly stevia to sweeten, along with agave nectar.. and flax meal.. this was not golden, which would be better I think. YOu can see the grainy texture a bit.. I have to work on that. Golden meal will be better, I'm sure.
Here is half of a great sandwich. From work. Crispy marinated tofu, chipotle mayo (vegan of course) and veggies on great pumpernickel bread... YUMO!
