Meatless Monday: Vegetarian Chili | Ezra Pound Cake If you’ve ever tried to make a vegetarian chili, you know how wrong this stuff can go. Some versions call for up to six cans of beans – a recipe for solitary confinement if there ever was one. Others taste like someone dumped a shaker of cumin into a pot of vegetable soup.

Chili’s supposed to be fun. I’d pretty much given up on ever finding a meatless version that deserved to be called chili – until I stumbled across this recipe from Emeril Lagasse. Finally, a meatless chili that’s delicious and fun. Now, pass the Fritos.

50 Things You Should Stop Buying & Start Making As a society, we have become over-reliant on “ready made” products. We have lost the ability to make things from scratch.
