So…it snowed here AGAIN today. Seriously…this is getting crazy. Too much winter and not enough summer make Courtney go crazy. *hah* I’m longing for lounging on a patio and spending the day at the beach reading a good book. *sigh* Alas, the forecast states we will finally be in positive digits by the weekend. Fingers crossed!!! :)
Even though the snow made me a tad cranky today, this delicious veggie chili mac was perfectly warm and comforting. A few weeks back, my mom made this veggie chili mac for my dad, Jesse and me for Sunday dinner. We all loved it. Such a simple one-pot dish with so much flavour. I’m generally not a fan of vegetarian ground crumbles, but they worked perfectly in this dish to add some texture. The veggie crumbles and the beans made this dish a protein power house and was incredibly filling. This dish has become a go-to meal in our home. We’ve already made it a number of times. It’s great if you are looking to have some left-overs available for lunches and such.
Hope you are all having a great week! Any plans for the upcoming weekend? If it’s nice out, I plan on going for a few long walks. It’s been too long since I properly spent time outside. We are also going out for dinner with some good friends on Saturday. And, i’m hoping to spend some time in the kitchen over the weekend as well. I have so many recipes I want to try and share :)
Note: For my Canadian friends, I highly recommend using the President’s Choice Blue Menu vegetarian ground crumble. In my opinion, it has great texture. Also, if you cannot find vegan worcestershire sauce, you can omit it or add a splash of apple cider vinegar to the chili.
