you’re on notice: vegetarian cashew chili

Oh I love Stephen Colbert!

It’s been a busy week here at Sandwich HQ. Not only have I been working outside the home during the day, but I’ve been having loads of adventures around town in the evenings. There hasn’t been much time for cooking or blogging…but last Sunday I did manage to gorge myself on some blackberries! Now that the week is over, I’ve got one evening to get organized for a 5-day camping trip to the Okanagan, the East Kootneys, Nelson and the Slocan Valley. We’ll be camping and thrifting and hitting up the luscious fruit & vegetable stands as we head out to south-eastern BC. If anyone has any tips or restaurant recomendations, I’m all ears! Did I mention that I leave tommorrow morning? Gulp! I’ve got some lists to check off, packing to do and a bit of food preperation. I’ve already made some amazing granola to take with us, but I’m also going to be trying a new camping recipe. Before I went on my last camping trip, Helios of Tales from a Veggie Kitchen suggested I make this veggie chili, perfect for camping trips. Unfortunately, it would have been too much to carry with us for our biking trip, but this time, we’ll be car camping and I’m definitely going to try this out. And if you aren’t planning a camping trip anytime soon, it can definitely be made in any indoor kitchen too!

    I’m not a camper myself, but the recipe sound delicious and I’ll have to give it a try the next time my best friend comes around for dinner 😉

    That sounds amazing! I love chili, though I am more inclined to buy my favorite brand from Trader Joe’s, this is a great, simple recipe for when I get motivated to make my own

    One of my best friend’s husband is actually on the On Notice board, or was at one time…

    I just discovered your blog and I love it. We have similar food tastes and styles. Love that you don’t always follow a recipe and make up meals depending on what is in your kitchen. Thank you!!
