Oil-Free ‘Clean Out The Fridge’ 3 Bean Vegan Chili

Oil-Free ‘Clean Out The Fridge’ 3 Bean Vegan Chili

  What’s better than using up a whole lotta fresh veggies from your refrigerator and coming up with a delicious, spicy pot of chunky chili?  Well in my case today, combining them with a few Pumpkin Rosemary Drop Biscuits from Kathy Hester’s new book, “The Easy Vegan Cookbook”.  Woah,  what a good combination ♥   I’ve been in such a ‘Fall Foods’ mood this week, I finally broke down and emptied out the veggies I had left in the fridge, put it all in a pot and called it ‘chili’.  Luckily for me…it tastes darn good too!! Not to let a good bowl of chili stand alone, I tried out a recipe from Kathy’s newest book to compliment the spice and tang of the my chili.  Kathy’s Pumpkin Rosemary Drop Biscuits are a play on the old Baking Mix boxed biscuits that we all used to know and love.  But these are whole lot tastier and a whole lot better for you.    I used a Gluten-Free flour for mine but Kathy gives lots of options and ideas in her recipe.  Sorry I can’t share that recipe here but get started on the chili, and then pick up a copy of…

Key Lime Oreo Cheesecake with Coconut Oat Vanilla Nut Creamer from Kathy Hester’s ‘OATrageous Oatmeals’ review & giveaway

Key Lime Oreo Cheesecake with Coconut Oat Vanilla Nut Creamer from Kathy Hester’s ‘OATrageous Oatmeals’ review & giveaway

This Giveaway is now closed.  Well, well well.  Kathy Hester has really done it this time. Today, Kathy presents us with her ode to Oatmeal. Kathy Hester’s  OATrageous Oatmeals: Delicious & Surprising Plant-Based Dishes From This Humble, Heart-Healthy Grain ” Just the word “oatmeal” can evoke strong memories. It takes me back to a childhood bowl of apple-cinnamon instant oats. Warming and soothing, it fortified me enough to go out into the cold to school. But oats can be so much more if you just explore and experiment a little bit. In this book, I will show you that you can make a meal out of oats any time of the day or night. You’ll be amazed by oat recipes that go way beyond adding hot water to a brown packet of instant oats.”  – Kathy Hester    One of many favorite recipes, I have many as you’ll see in this post from July, is Kathy’s ‘Coconut Oat Vanilla Nut Creamer’ I’ve been using it mostly in the mornings with a tasty new granola mix with buckwheat groats, chia seeds, dried fruit.  I warm the Coconut Oat Creamer slightly and pour it onto my granola.  It mixes with the sweet…

Kathy’s ‘Strawberry Spelt Biscuits’ – from Healthy Slow Cooking – Breakfast In Bed-Fest entry #5

Kathy’s ‘Strawberry Spelt Biscuits’ – from Healthy Slow Cooking – Breakfast In Bed-Fest entry #5

My ‘Breakfast In Bed-Festival’ this year is really just a sneaky way of sharing my favorite Vegan bloggers best breakfast recipes with you all and having a bit of competitive fun all the while.  As I have said too many lots of times before, I leave out for work in the pre-pre-dawn hours, more like the middle of the night for some, I’m sure. I don’t get the luxury very often to enjoy a wonderfully fresh home made breakfast to enjoy in the comfort of my home.  So I’m hosting a little monthly highlight this year of the best of the best in healthy breakfast ideas for days when I am able to spend more time enjoying breakfast. I’ve asked 12 of the most creative, health conscious and economically minded  bloggers to each share 1 breakfast that highlights both their own website and their own ingenuity for eating healthily, kindly and creatively.  At year’s end, we’ll have a little vote on which month’s posting you all enjoyed the most and congratulate the winner with a few kind words and some prizes.  There’s a Pinterest board you can follow to see how the event unfolds each month with all the recipes and news about my…

Kathy Hester’s ‘Chocolate Chip Cookies For Two’ – plus a giveaway!

Kathy Hester’s ‘Chocolate Chip Cookies For Two’ – plus a giveaway!

Closing out the end of Vegan MoFo with a bang folks: Have you had that evening yearning for just a touch of sweet but would never dream of dragging out everything you would need to make a couple dozen cookies up hot and fresh? Kathy Hester has a solution that will rock your dessert world…as well as your meal plans. Seriously.  Is this cookie big enough or what? The recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies in  ‘Vegan Slow Cooking For Two – or – Just For You’ has directions for one big beautiful (shareable) cookie.   I mixed up a quadruple batch of batter then separated  half into a long tube, wrapped it and stuck it in the freezer for another night’s cravings.  All I have to do is heat up the slow cooker and slice off a couple of  inches of batter from the freezer some night and I’m set in about an hour.  Okay, maybe I over did it a too much  little with the ‘extras’  for these cookies but they are chocked full of goodness.  Big dark chocolate chips, pecans, cranberries…… I also sprinkled each one with some coarse sea salt that cuts through the dark rich chocolate chips perfectly.…
