Hearty Chili with Vegan Sour Cream

Ingredients: 1.5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 2 heaping cups diced sweet onion 2 tablespoons minced garlic (about 4 med/lg cloves) 2 jalapeños, seeded (if desired) and diced 1 cup diced celery 1 lg. red bell pepper, seeded and diced 1 (28-oz) can diced tomatoes 1 cup vegetable broth 6 tablespoons tomato paste 1 (15-oz) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed 1 (15-oz) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed 2 tablespoons chili powder 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1 teaspoon dried oregano 1/2-3/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt, or to taste 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper 1 teaspoon hot sauce TOPPINGS: Homemade vegan sour cream Chopped green onions Fresh cilantro Directions: In a large pot, saute the onion and the garlic in the oil over medium heat until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt and stir. Add the jalapeños, celery, and bell pepper and saute for another 5-7 minutes or so, until softened. Now add the can of diced tomatoes (with the juice), broth, and tomato paste. Stir to combine. Increase heat to medium-high. Add the drained and rinsed beans, along with the chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, cayenne, and hot sauce. Simmer the mixture until thickened, about 10-15 minutes and adjust seasonings to taste if necessary. Serve with Homemade vegan sour cream, chopped green onion, and cilantro leaves, if desired. Vegan Sour Cream: Ingredients: 1 cup raw cashews, soaked 1/2-3/4 cup water, as needed 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar 1/4-1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt, to taste Directions: Place cashews in a bowl and cover with water. Soak for a minimum of 2 hours, preferably overnight or for 8 hours if you have the time. Drain and rinse the cashews and place in the blender. Add water, lemon, vinegar, and salt. Blend on high until smooth. You might have to stop to scrape down the blender now and then or add a touch more water to get it going. Once it's super smooth, it's ready! Transfer into a small container. The cream will thicken up as it sits.

This looks nice and hearty. I'd probably throw some of those Gardein vegetarian beef tips in there too.
One if my favorite dish! I'm saving this for later.
Even my carnivore dad will love this!
I love putting sour cream on my chili :) This sounds great!
Hot sauce, cayenne, and jalapeños? Oh my!

Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
These look simply incredible. Two of my favorite things, chocolate chip cookies and caramel, combined into one heavenly cookie creation. I was looking for more caramel recipes (because that's what I do in my spare time, duh) when I found this recipe from Table for Two. I mean, can you even imagine anything more perfect?!? Look at that gooey, warm caramel. Those molten chocolate chunks. That perfectly chewy cookie. Imagine how good these are fresh out of the oven. Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies Prep Time: 10 min. Cook Time: 13 min. Difficulty: Easy Recipe adapted from Table for Two Ingredients 3 sticks (1½ cup) unsalted butter, softened 1½ cup dark brown sugar, packed ½ cup granulated sugar 2 eggs 4 tsp. vanilla extract 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 cups bread flour (you may use all-purpose flour instead if you don't have it on hand) 4 tsp. cornstarch 2 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. salt 1½ cups chocolate chunks ½ cup dark chocolate, finely chopped 18 caramel candies, cut in half to give you 36 Directions 1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. In another mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy (about 2 mins). Add eggs and vanilla. Beat 2 more mins. 2. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until fully incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips with a spatula. To form the cookies, take a spoonful of dough, and use your thumb to make a small hole and press the caramel into the center. Re-roll the ball to cover the caramel candy. 3. Bake for 11-13 minutes. They may look quite soft at this point, but remember they will continue to cook after you remove them from the oven. Allow them to cool completely on baking sheet, or else they'll break and caramel will ooze everywhere. Enjoy, my fellow cookie monsters!! This one's for @JPBenedetto – maybe you could find a way to work in some oatmeal here, for a little extra chew? :D <3 @Luci546 @MooshieBay @InPlainSight You guys might like this one as well :)
