Meatless Monday: Vegan Three Bean Chili with Avocado


Vegan Chili

Happy Meatless Monday and last Monday in February! I don’t know about you but I am always happy to see February come to an end.  It is probably my least favorite month, especially this year with all of the terribly frigid temps we’ve been having.  

Actually, yesterday was quite warm…a balmy 27 degrees and I was even tempted to breakout the shorts and flip flops.  That “warm” blast of air lasted for all of a hot second though and today we are back to bone chilling single degree temperatures! 

Aside from a sweaty run or some exercise and vats of coffee, the best way to warm up is with some vegan three bean chili.  While I know that this isn’t the most creative Meatless Monday recipe, it certainly is tasty and comforting…especially when it’s topped with avocado! 😉
