Cocoa Coconut Chili

OH.MY.GOD.  Hands down the best chili I have ever had.  Dreena has done it again with this amazing recipe.  Cocoa Coconut Chili is from Eat, Drink & Be Vegan.  This is quickly becoming my favorite cookbook.  2nd recipe this week from it that is outstanding.  And, it is naturally gluten-free!

I did modify the recipe slightly.  I used mushroom instead of onions (I can’t eat them).  I also left out the agave because the coconut milk is sweet enough (there is a note in the book that suggests this).  I also added diced avocado to the top of my chili.  I served with a large salad & half of a Trader Joe’s gluten-free French roll. 


Sorry for the picture quality…it was rainy & dreary out today.  I made this full recipe and I think I am the only one in the family who will eat it.  That is fine by me, though, I froze a couple containers of this so that I will have this yummy goodness to pull out when I feel like a bowl of love.  πŸ˜‰  I see myself making this recipe a lot. 


Hope you are all having a nice Friday night!  I am about to head to bed & watch Flash Forward that I DVR’d last night.  I have to get my sleep…9 miles on the agenda for the AM!
