Happy Herbivore Cincinnati Chili

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.


  1. glad you enjoyed it! p.s. there is a tuna in the book too -- to scratch your other itch! :-P

  2. I love this!! I also miss Skyline Chili...soo good.
