Hygge 3-Bean Chili

Vegetarian Friendly

I would like to share with you one of our all time favorite recipes.  In true hygge fashion, enjoying the process of preparing the ingredients and having the wonderful aroma fill the house while you slowly cook this chili, is nearly as rewarding as sitting down as a family to enjoy it.

While this meal can be enjoyed at any time on any day, if you were to prepare this meal on a cold snowy Sunday morning after your morning coffee or tea listening to some relaxing music, you will have all the makings for a complete day of memorable hygge moments.
