Greetings my fellow This Heart of Mine readers. I was so thrilled that Amy is hosting another seasonally-inspired series during the dreary winter months and have already found so much inspiration this past week. I hope you have too.
My name is Dana and I write over at Bloom and Inspire. Even though I’ve been a midwestern gal all my life, I am not the biggest fan of winter and can never get used to the cold. What I don’t mind, however, is comfort food.
I’m a vegetarian and my husband always has been and always will be a carnivore. I do, however, try to make meatless meals that are still hearty and filling enough that both of us can enjoy. One of my favorite winter meals is my homemade Hearty Vegetarian Chili.
The smell of this protein-packed vegetarian dish will have you salivating in no time. I like to serve my chili in a small corn tortilla shell as part of a veggie taco mixed with jasmine rice, shredded lettuce, a sprinkling of low-fat Mexican cheese and a dollop of sour cream or guacamole. You could also go the “naked” route and just build a bowl with these sans shell. Even my carnivorous husband can’t get enough of this dish.
And if you really cannot give up your meat, go ahead and throw some ground beef in there. I’ll allow it.
I hope you and your loved ones are staying warm this winter. Thanks for having me, Amy. I hope to see some of you over at Bloom and Inspire soon!
Chili is always good during the winter. Thanks Dana!
