Vegetarian chili and Cheddar Jalaleno CornBread

OK so this is a recipe packed day. 

I have like 4 recipes to share. But Less is more or more is more... or less is more when it has to do with bees... Wait what!?.. is more 

OK hmm I just confused myself.. LOL so  anyways I will do 2 today and 2 tomorrow!!!


So Ill start with the one everyone wanted the recipe for. If you want to share it with your friends... you can pin it on Pinterest or Facebook or Google or whatever... Ok Lets start with the Cornbread first.

Vegan Gluten Free Jalapeno and Cheddar Cornbread!



1 1/8 cups yellow cornmeal (Cornmeal is naturally gluten free.. just read package for no added ingredients)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup All purpose gluten free flour (Bob's redmill)
1 1/4 cups buttermilk ( I make my own from 1 tablespoon lemon juice to one cup of coconut milk (you can do this to any milk you like to use)
2 egg white lightly beaten (Ener-G egg sub works very well)
1/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (vegan cheddar cheese find this at any health food market... you want to try the brand that works best for you taste wise)
2 tablespoons mild green chiles, chopped



Preheat oven to 450º.

Prepare an 8 x 8 inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray and dust
with 2 tablespoons of cornmeal.

Sift into a large bowl the remaining cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, salt
and flour.

In another bowl combine buttermilk, eggs, cheese and chile,
then stir into the dry ingredients. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan and place in
upper third of oven. ( That is the top rack middle of Oven)

Bake 30 minutes or until dough is firm in center.

Now for the Chilli!!! Let me just say... Amazing!!! it packs all the nutrition use veggie-mates need and all of the flavor... Who said vegan food isn't delicious!!!

Black Bean and Cumin Vegetarian Chili




Ingredients: Yield about 6 Servings (I cook for one so I everything I make is store and freeze friendly)


2 Tablespoons Evoo

1 Large Red Onion Chopped

1 Large Bell Pepper (any color) Chopped

 1 1/2 TableSpoon cumin seeds

4 teaspoons minced canned chipotle chilies

2 15-ounce cans black beans, rinsed (get less sodium or no sodium)

1 15-ounce can of kidney beans or chili beans rinsed

2 14-1/2 cans diced tomatoes with roasted garlic

2 cups vegetable broth (no msg kind)


Heat oil in Large pot over Med-High heat. Add Onions, Bell Pepper, and cummin seeds. 



Saute until onion is soft, Stirring Frequently, About 10 minutes. Add chipotle chilies and stir about 30 seconds.


Add Beans, diced tomatoes with juices, and vegetable broth; bring to boil. 



Reduce heat to medium simmer uncovered until liquid is reduced by about half, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes. Next transfer 2 cups chili to processor (should have gotten a ninja by now!!! :) )Blend to coarse paste




 Return to pot Simmer chili to thicken if serving the same day... If freezing or storing chili will thicken over night. 



If the salt content is not good enough... you can now season to taste (less is more) and Serve!!!



I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as I did!!! From my kitchen to yours! Bear Hugz!!

You put that Where!? Swiss Shard!!!

Today we will be talking about Swiss Shards!!! So Delicious and Nutritious!!! 

Chard, is a leafy green vegetable often used in Mediterranean cooking. While the leaves are always green, chard stalks vary in color. Chard has been bred to have highly nutritious leaves at the expense of the root (which is not as nutritious as the leaves). Chard is, in fact, considered to be one of the healthiest vegetables available and a valuable addition to a healthy diet (not unlike other green leafy vegetables). Chard has been around for centuries, but because of its similarity to beets is difficult to determine the exact evolution of the different varieties of chard. 

The one of the most common variety is the red stalk and vein. The word "Swiss" was used to distinguish chard from French spinach varieties by 19th century seed catalog publishers. The chard is very popular among Mediterranean cooks. The first varieties have been traced back to Sicily. I have an amazing Swiss Shard spaghetti sauce ill share next week.


Also An Amazing Swiss Shard fish taco recipe Using the Leafs as the shell. 


The Shard has a taste between a beet and spinach... Having the spinach taste reduce a bit while cooking. I will summit the two recipes next week, but you can try your own combination and send me the pics and recipes I would love to try them. Thank you for reading. From my kitchen to yours. Bear Hugz!!!

Parmigiano Pretzel Coconut Salmon with Cilantro Coconut Curry Red Potatoes

This Super Sexy sounding dish Is super easy to make and so so so DELICIOSO to eat!!!! Keep reading ill take your taste buds on a little tour! 



1 piece of Frozen Salmon (Trader Joe's has very nice Wild Alaskan Salmon)

4 red potatoes

1 ounce of Cilantro (just a couple of stems will do)

1 garlic clove

2 tsp EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)

1 tsp Parmesan Cheese 

1 tsp flour (any flour will do)

1 tsp Curry x2

1 tsp ginger

1 lime

Sea salt and Pepper to taste



Turn oven on to 375 degrees. 

Wash your 4 red potatoes and place them on your cutting board.


Using your  Chef Knife you want to cut your potatoes into cubes... Cut the potato in half then in 1/4 and so on and so forth till your get them to your desired size.


Then ruff chop your cilantro and place in a large bowl with your potatoes. Add 1 tsp of olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, lime juice and curry mix well with a wooden spoon. (Wooden or plastic spoons dont scracth your bowls)



 Spray a cookie sheet or Pizza pan like i use with some EVOO to prevent potatoes from sticking to the pan. 



Bake for about 45 to 60 minutes or until potatoes are cooked. You should be able to stick a fork thru the potatoes when cooked. Meanwhile as your potatoes cook...


In a deep bowl Mix the flour,  1/3 coconut milk, curry, salt, pepper and ginger to make a nice liquid.

By this time your potatoes should be half way cooked with about 15 minutes or so left. perfect time to pop the salmon in on the second rack. 


In the same bowl you mix your first milk bath... you want to mix the rest of your milk, ginger, salt, pepper, and curry and combine. Adding your cooked and steaming potatoes to the mix.
