Three Bean Chili & Chive-Flecked Cornbread

I am always on the lookout for good vegan chili recipes. We’re only a couple months into winter and I’ve made chili three times. A recipe I recently found and loved is the PPK recipe for meaty, beany chili. As far as chili goes, this is everything you could ask for. Plus, Isa’s accompanying video is fantastic. Here I’ve hardly changed a thing except to lower the garlic, skip the cloves, and add a few lil’ extras. I also added chives to the cornbread since I’d enjoyed this recipe on Resolute Woot for chive-flecked cornmeal dumplings. ‘Chive-flecked’ is such an adorable description.
