Sep 1, 2018

We usually include a delicious seasonal recipe in our newsletters but this time we had so much to say we ran out of space! Rather than miss out, we thought we’d share our choice here. Please do let us know what you think if you give it a try. 

This comfort food comes from Jessica in the Kitchen and can be found with all it’s accompanying photographs and background by following the link.




Add broth, sweet potato, uncooked quinoa, black beans and tomatoes to the slow cooker. Stir to combine.

Add the peppers, carrot, corn, onion and garlic, and stir, then add the rest of the seasonings, stir to combine.

Set the slow cooker to high for 2- 2 1/2 hours or on low for 5-6 hours (for high, monitor the last 30 minutes and for low, monitor the last hour).


Vegan Cashew Sour Cream

Blend all the ingredients for cashew sour cream in a high speed blender until smooth, for about 30 seconds, scraping blender once halfway in between.

Serve on chili with your favourite toppings.
