Bohemian Beachside Home Tour

I love the eclectic bohemian feel of this mostly white beachside home!  With some small pops of black and beautiful unique pieces of artwork, this beachside home isn’t lacking a thing.  I’m pretty much obsessed with everything in this space.  Let me show you:

Is it mostly white? Does it have straw/basket lighting? Is there a big beautiful plant on a rustic wood table? Check, check and check! ❤

Meatless Monday Recipe : Savory Pumpkin Chili

I’m so excited it’s October!  Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and to get in the spirit, I’m sharing my Savory Pumpkin Chili.  It’s a great one-pot meal, it’s vegetarian with an easy vegan spin AND it includes everyone’s Fall favorite vegetable, pumpkin!  Regardless of what is happening, the seasons will keep on changing and I am finding comfort in the familiarity of that.  Check out my Meatless Monday recipe below:

 

Meatless Monday Recipe : Savory Pumpkin Chili

 

  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 4 large celery stalks
  • 3 large carrots
  • 3 – 4 garlic cloves
  • 3 cans kidney beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 1 28 oz can san marzano tomatoes (chopped)
  • 1 can pumpkin puree
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 4 tbsp EVOO
  • 3 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tbsp fresh sage
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1/4 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp parsley
  • sea salt and pepper to taste

Options:  Top over rice or homemade french fries!  Pairs well with homemade guacamole, cilantro and roasted pumpkin seeds.

 

Meatless Monday Recipe : Savory Pumpkin Chili

 

  • Peel onion, carrots, and garlic, place in food processor with chopped celery stalks and red pepper and pulse until minced.
  • Place in pot on medium heat with EVOO and let cook until soft.
  • While your mirepoix is cooking, puree the can of tomatoes and rinse/drain your beans.
  • Once mirepoix has softened, add all remaining ingredients and let simmer (covered) on low heat for 45 minutes or until broth and tomato juices are mostly absorbed.  Stir occasionally.
  • Serve over homemade french fries with a side of guacamole and sour cream!
