How are things going with you? I haven't received too many frantic calls from the parentals about my unfortunate bike incident yesterday, so I'm assuming all is well in the world ;)
Since I didn't bike into work this morning - my brakes weren't feeling so solid after my little tumble - I decided to go for a run during my lunch break.

Vegetarian Chili with Quinoa
As promised, here is a recipe for a vegetarian chili with quinoa. I thought that the quinoa was a nice little addition, it doesn't change the consistency at all, and it gives an added boost of protein to the mix. Win-win situation, if you ask me.
Again I am so surprised at how easy it is to make this recipe - the hardest part is the prep. Which isn't hard at all, it is more time-consuming than anything else.
But I am a big fan of blasting the sweet beats and having a little zen time in the kitchen. I never believed that this could be possible - for anyone who knows me well *ahem* my old roomies *ahem* they know that I have not always been a natural in the kitchen and would generally just settle for a mixture of chickpeas and a side of cucumber. Minimal effort and basically no cooking involved.
But, hey, practice makes perfect :)
Okay...maybe not perfect, but at least it will help you make delicious chili to enjoy on a cool fall evening. Let me know if you try it out! Tell me what you think :)
