Things I love about fall: an all black ensemble, a vampy lip, a leather moto jacket, the list goes on. BUT we certainly cannot forget the most important part of fall – eating 3 trillion pounds of delicious comfort food. Am I right or am I right?
However, the thought of cooking all of that food can be a bit daunting. At least for me it can seem that way. Around this time of the year, lots of events based around food will probably take up more time on your calendar than you think. For example work potlucks, Friendsgivings, tailgating, etc. It can be really difficult to eat healthy too, which can be v annoying when the VS Fashion Show rolls around in December and you’re sitting on the couch feel like a potato. I know I’m not the only one.
Fear not, for I am sharing with you the healthiest and funniest cooking blog/cookbook ever – Thug Kitchen. No seriously, this is the best cookbook and blog about food you’ll ever read in your f*cking life. Pardon my french, but the profanity is necessary in this context. Here’s a little snippet of what this cookbook has to offer:
“The only website dedicated to verbally abusing you into a healthier diet. That’s where the Internet bus driver just dropped your ass off. Welcome to Thug Kitchen, motherfucker.”
If that doesn’t make you laugh or or get you interested in checking out their recipes…
All recipes are vegan, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t hearty and/or delicious. Bradford and I have whipped up a TON of the dishes from this book and he is obsessed. Go ahead, ask him.
This Bean and Beer Chili is my absolute favorite vegetarian recipe to make during the fall. No lie I made this at least 7 times last fall and never got sick of it once. It makes a MASSIVE batch so I always am able to eat on it for at least 4-5 days. Make it on a Sunday and boom, you’ve got your lunch or dinner for the rest of the week! Trust me on this one guys.
Now GO, check out this recipe here, make your grocery list, and get to it people. Let me add my two cents though: for the beer portion, I always use a Sweetwater Georgia Brown because it gives it a really nice full flavor. Using a Bud Light is just a waste TBH. AND if you don’t want to add beer, no worries. I’ve made it sans booze and it definitely does not compromise the flavor. Also, I love adding some rice to my chili. So I always cook up some instant jasmine rice and pour my serving of chili on top. SO. GOOD.
Okay for the hundredth time go check out the Bean and Beer Chili recipe HERE! Their new book, Thug Kitchen 101, launches October 11th, so what convenient timing right?! I’m 100% ordering it and you should too. Do it.
Have you guys whipped up any of these other Thug Kitchen recipes before? Let’s share, yeah??
