EAT LAUGH CRAFT’S FIRST GIVEAWAY!!!

Yahoo!! Ok as stated above Red Gold contacted me about my blog and offered to send me a goodie box filled with product samples and some other various red gold logo items. They sent me a really really nice wooden spoon that says “Red Gold Official Blogger” ooooh fancy! It is heavy and a really good quality! Then they sent me a cute Red Tomato Apron, 6 cans of different Red Gold products (two of which I used for this recipe) and a little collection of recipes. How nice right?!?!? Well I would like to hook one lucky reader up with a similar package of goodies! Don’t you want all of what is below?!? Yes, yes you do.

So you have one week from today to enter yourself into the drawing and I will announce the winner after the giveaway closes. The giveaway will run from Friday 9/26 until Friday 10/3. I will randomly pick a winner shortly after that! Due to some hosting issues with my blog, I am having issues running this giveaway exactly as I would like.

So there are two ways to enter into the giveaway:

1) Go to our Eat Laugh Craft Facebook page and go to the “GIVEAWAY’ tab, just below the cover photo. Then you will have a box appear with 4 ways in which you can enter to win! Do at least 1 or all 4!

2) Because I personally hate contests that only allow Facebook entries I will also enter anyone into the drawing who comments on their favorite post here on the blog (this post or any other). Take a look around a find a post you maybe haven’t seen before. Make sure to use the hashtag #eatlaughcraft just so I can know you saw this giveaway and want to be entered.

That’s it! So easy! Now get out there and enter yourselves and win this goodie box!!!!

OH!!! one more thing. Red Gold Tomatoes is currently hosting their OWN giveaway called “2 A Day Crockpot Giveaway”, where you guessed it, they are giving away two crockpots a day from now until October 8th! All you need to do it go to their Facebook page and enter yourself to win. GOOD LUCK!

Vegan Quinoa & Sweet Potato Chili

Vegan Quinoa & Sweet Potato Chili

makes 6 hearty bowls of chili

IMG_2047

____________________________________________________

Ingredients:

one 29 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
one 6 oz can tomato paste
32 oz vegetable stock
1 onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon oregano
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into bite sized chunks
1 cup dry quinoa
salt and pepper to taste
avocado, cilantro for garnish  (optional)

_________________________________________________

Then What To Do:

Heat oil in a large heavy soup pot over medium low heat. Add onions and cook until soft and they start to turn brown (about 10 minutes). Add the garlic, and cook for about 1-2 minutes. Then add the following: tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, and oregano and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the beans, stock, and potatoes, and season with salt and pepper . Cook for about 5 minutes and add the quinoa. Continue cooking for about 15 minutes – 30 minutes(Mine took closer to the 3o minute mark that the 15), stirring frequently, until quinoa and potatoes are cooked. The chili will have also thickened- if it has become too thick for your tastes you can add a bit of water. Your’e done! Now, top with avocado and/or chopped cilantro & try not to eat it all! 🙂

*I really like hot foods! (hot as is spicy) so I added a dried chili pepper to this as well. I just kind of crushed/chopped it up and added it the same time as the beans, stock etc…Hope you enjoy!
