Vegetarian Campfire Chili
We're right in the middle of our glamping week and unfortunately, we can't live on champagne alone. This meatless chili is a friendly fireside meal that cooks up in 30 minutes and because it's healthy, we can indulge in late night s'mores (and gossip) guilt free! It's a meat free dish so no worries about whether or not things are cooked to a certain temperature. My only advice is to chop everything before hand to make it as easy as possible once you're actually on site. Serve it up with a fresh baguette and some real butter and you've got some happy campers on your hands.
PS - Don't forget your can opener!
