Vegetarian Pumpkin Chili

Vegetarian Pumpkin Chili

Fall is in the air. Two staples around my house this time of year is pumpkin and chili. So why not combine the two for a hearty Vegetarian Pumpkin Chili. In my quest to find a recipe I stumbled across a great recipe from Pumpkin chili is definitely on the menu at my house in the near future. Yum!

Serves 8 to 10

3-pound pie pumpkin or other orange-fleshed squash such as butternut, Red Kuri, or Golden Hubbard
2 medium turnips, about 3/4 pound
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup finely ground cornmeal
2 red bell peppers, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons tomato paste
4 cups vegetarian broth
2 10-ounce cans diced tomatoes with green chilies, such as Rotel
2 16-ounce cans chili beans, drained
2 cups frozen corn
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cumin
Several dashes vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Balsamic vinegar, to taste
Chopped green onions, to serve
Shredded cheddar cheese, to serve
Sour cream, to serve

Peel the pumpkin or squash and cut into 1-inch pieces. To make it easier to peel the pumpkin, cut in half, remove the seeds (and set aside for roasting!), then microwave each half cut-side down in a shallow dish of water for 5 minutes, or roast the halves at 450°F for about 15 minutes. When the pumpkin is cool enough to handle, shave off the skin with a sharp knife. (See our directions here on how to roast pumpkin and squash seeds.)

Peel the turnips and cut into 1-inch pieces.

In a large Dutch oven or soup pot (it should hold at least 6 quarts), heat the butter and olive oil over medium heat. When melted, whisk in the cornmeal until smooth, then stir in the chopped pumpkin, turnip, bell peppers, onion, garlic, and tomato paste. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes.

Add the broth, diced tomatoes, beans, and corn. Stir in the chili powder, cinnamon, cumin, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring back to a simmer then reduce the heat and cook for at least 1 hour, or until the pumpkin and turnip are tender. (It gets even better if simmered longer — a whole afternoon, if you have the time.)

Before serving, taste and season with salt and pepper and a dash of balsamic vinegar. Serve hot with chopped green onions, shredded cheddar cheese, and sour cream.
Recipe Notes

*Vegan & Gluten-Free Pumpkin Chili: Substitute olive oil for the butter and offer dairy-free toppings to make the chili vegan. The chili is naturally gluten-free, as long as all prepared ingredients are gluten-free.

DIY Soap On A Rope

Soap on a rope

Here is a great idea for DIY Soap On A Rope from Katie at

-glycerin melt and pour soap base (available at most craft stores)
-essential oils—Katie used lemon, lavender, rose, and mint
-household containers in any shape or size you’d like. Plastic works the best. Tin cans can make it hard to extract the soap.

Step 1- Cut your soap base into cubes

Step 2- Melt four or five 2″ x 2″ cubes for a pint size container in your microwave.

Step 3- Once the base is melted, mix in whatever essential oils you’d like. Katie put in around 20-25 drops for these soaps.

Step 4- Position your rope perfectly in your container. Mason jars and a ruler work perfectly!

Step 5- Let the Soap set in the plastic containers overnight.. The Soap should pop right out the next day!

Enjoy! These homemade soaps are perfect house warming, gift ideas or you can just keep them all to yourself!

Pumpkin Bread Recipe

Pumpkin bread

Pumpkin season is here! The air has a chill, the kids (and adults) are picking their halloween costumes, and pumpkins are everywhere. Here is a delicious Pumpkin Bread recipe from that is sure to put smiles on faces.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes
Yield: Makes one loaf.


1 1/2 cups (200g) flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup (200 g) sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1 cup (240 ml) pumpkin purée*
4 ounces (1 stick, 112 g) butter, melted (can sub 1/2 cup light olive oil)
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup water
2 teaspoons molasses
1 teaspoon orange zest (optional)
1/2 cup (120 ml) chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

Optional Orange Glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp orange juice
1 teaspoon orange zest
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

* To make pumpkin purée, cut a small sugar pumpkin in half horizontally. Use a large metal spoon to scrape out the seeds and stringy stuff. Place the pumpkin halves cut side down on a foil or Silpat lined baking sheet. Bake at 350°F until soft, about 45 minutes to an hour. Cool, scoop out the flesh. Freeze whatever you don’t use for future use. Or, if you are working with pumpkin pieces, roast or boil them until tender, then remove and discard the skin.


1- Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, sugar, baking soda, ground ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.

2- In a separate bowl mix together the pumpkin purée, the melted butter, beaten eggs, 1/4 cup of water, molasses, and orange zest (if using). Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined and there is no more dry flour in the batter. Do not overmix! If adding chopped pecans or walnuts, stir them in.

3- Butter the insides of an 8 x 4 x 3 -inch loaf pan. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and smooth the top. Put in the middle rack of the oven. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes (depending on your oven and the color of your loaf pan—dark pans cook the contents more quickly than light pans), or until a tester poked in the center of the loaf comes out clean.

Remove from oven and let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Then run a blunt dinner knife around the edges of the pumpkin bread to gently separate it from the pan. Invert it to loosen it from the pan and put the loaf on a rack to cool completely.

4- If using the glaze, whisk together in a medium bowl the powdered sugar, orange juice, zest, and vanilla. Whisk until smooth. If too thick add  a little more juice. If too thin, add a little more powdered sugar.

Wait until the pumpkin bread has cooled completely before drizzling with glaze or slicing. Tip: use a serrated knife to slice. Less crumbs that way!
