This would have been a great meal for meatless Mondays, but we made it on Tuesday so we we just going to call it healthy & delicious. Eating meat everyday is not necessary as long as there is still a protein source. For this meal, that source was beans! We enjoyed our taco veggie chili with scones and a little bit of freshly grated mozzarella. The inspiration from this recipe came from Oh She Glows, one of our fave vegan blogs!
