There are three foods I sometimes miss: salami sandwiches, tuna fish salad sandwiches, and Cincinnati Chili (from Skyline in Cincinnati).
Of course, I had to try the version from The Happy Herbivore Cookbook. It uses bulgur wheat, a high-protein and high-fiber whole grain that's fat-free. The HH version was wonderful. It's spicy and slightly sweet like Skyline's and very filling. I had it over whole-wheat spaghetti but want to try it with vegan cheese sauce too.I paired it with a simple romaine salad topped with Caesar Chavez dressing from Appetite for Reduction. The cool flavor of the dressing went great with the spicy chili.
