Chili:

Whenever I am in the mood for something heart and cozy, chili is my go to. This recipe is super easy to prepare, a great meal prep idea. And it freezes well, so double the recipe, and save for a night you don’t feel like cooking.

Steps to making chili:

Making this chili is super easy. I first start by draining and rinsing my canned beans. And then I sautƩ the onions with avocado oil, salt and pepper for 5-7 minutes. Next, I add in the butternut squash, mushrooms, zucchini, and cook a few minutes. And then I add in the seasonings and cook until fragrant (1-2 minutes). Lastly, add in the beans, broth, tomato paste, fire roasted tomatoes, bring to a boil, and then cover, and simmer for 30 minutes.

Cornbread:

This cornbread recipe is one of my favorites because it is extra cheesy, fluffy, and moist. It sort of reminds me of that corn cake they make at El Toritos, anyone know which one I am talking about? That used to be my jam, and I would eat plates of it. But if you don’t want to make your own from scratch, just buy a store bought cornbread and call it a night.

Here is what you’ll need for the cornbread:

  1. Unsweetened almond milk
  2. Eggs
  3. Apple cider vinegar
  4. Unsweetened applesauce
  5. Coconut oil
  6. Baking powder
  7. Baking soda
  8. Cornmeal
  9. Coconut flour
  10. Cheese
  11. Jalapeno
  12. Sea salt
How to prepare the cornbread:

Add everything to a bowl, mix, and add to a greased cast iron skillet, bake 350 for 25-30 minutes.
