Chili a la Vegan

Clouds and rain don’t stop us!

I am so fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I swear this place keeps me grounded, everyday I have one of those “sigh” moments. Today was no different, boating around the Burrard inlet, with the fresh ocean breeze, great company and of course the most loveliest views! The weather is still a little chilly. Once we got home we were definitely in the mood to bundle up with a movie, fire and a homemade bowl of my vegan chili.
Hopefully, this recipe will keep you warm until the sun shines!
