Friends of Animals President Priscilla Feral and correspondent Nicole Rivard helped the Connecticut-based Rowayton Gardeners Club make history by providing the recipe for a vegan chili to enter into the Rowayton Historical Society’s 8th Annual Chili Cook-off last weekend.

It was the first time there was a meat-free entry in the event, and attendees commented over and over how thrilled they were to have a vegan option that had outstanding flavor.

Not only is the recipe, which can be found in Feral’s vegan cookbook Dining With Friends, a great candidate for any cook-off, it’s perfect for any upcoming football or holiday gatherings, so we are sharing it below.

Bon appétit!
