I don't have time to watch the Food Network much, but the other day I caught Rachel Ray making a Vegetarian Shepherd Pie. While she was preparing the dish, she mentioned that she and her husband go meatless three or four times a week. Nice.
That got me thinking, and I made a trip to the Food Network website, which, I found out, is loaded with vegetarian recipes. While searching around, I came upon a great-sounding recipe for vegetarian chili from Emeril Lagasse. Since I was more in the mood for chili than shepherd's pie, I made the chili first. Emeril serves his over rice, but I like my chili just by itself. It came out really tasty.
I brought in a batch for my coworkers, and they agreed. As the weather gets cooler, please give this one a try. You'll be happy you did. Enjoy the weekend :)
p.s., I once again couldn't upload my picture from iphoto. I do have one of this delicious chili and promise to get it up soon.
