Is it bad that I’m already looking forward to fall meals? Before you get upset, hear me out. I LOVE summer and would never wish it away, but there’s an element of comfort from a warm meal on a cool day that you can’t get from anywhere else, you know?


We’ve been pretty much in a heatwave for most of the summer, and I have to say I’m getting a bit tired of bean salads, which has been my go-to meatless lunch all summer. This has got me thinking of my favourite warm meatless dishes that I rely on throughout the fall and winter. One of my weekly go-to meatless meals during cooler months is a vegetarian curry. I’ll typically use either chickpeas or lentils for protein, load it up with veggies, and serve over rice.
