The weather is starting to thaw, but I still crave comfort foods like crazy! But I have had to find comfort foods in different ways because our church is doing a church-wide Daniel fast. Don’t know what a Daniel fast is? No worries I had to learn all about it too!

So pretty much its the fast Daniel did in the Bible (want to learn more). So for the past two weeks, Isaiah and I have been vegan. I enjoy cooking vegan food, it can be challenging and most of all refreshing. Now I am not a huge chili person; I hate when it has tomato juice or tomato paste! I want the chili to be warming, comforting and pleasantly filling. No, I do not want to feel groggy, stuffed and ready for a nap. That's why my chilis are my favorite, but I am kinda biased.

But being vegan lately has made me miss meat a little, but then I found my new favorite vegan meat substitute. Soy Chorizo!! Its just tofu/Tempa seasoned like chorizo, and I kid you not, it tastes fantastic! Isaiah even said it makes him not miss the meat. It's that good, It isn't so soaked in oil like traditional chorizo, and it has a little less salty. I always grab it while I am at trader joes, but if you don't have trader joes, I did find this brand of Soy Chorizo at my local grocery store. Pick it up and use it like regular chorizo in any recipe!
