Emeril’s Vegetarian Chili

October 15, 2010 11:46

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.
