Happy Canada Day, eh!

In honor of Canada Day here’s the re-Canadian Flagpost of the recipe taken from COOKED BOOKS, a cookbook featuring recipes from the staff of Princeton University Press. Enjoy!

“Revenge of the Once-Domestic Canadian, Ann Ambrose” (spin off from PUP book Revenge of the Domestic by Donna Harsch.)

Cyber Goddess “Great White North ‘Chilly'”

1 pound veggie ground round
1 medium-sized onion, chopped
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
1 can vegetarian beans
1–2 tablespoons chili powder

Sauté veggie ground round and onion in large frying pan. Add tomatoes, sauce, beans, and chili powder; stir. Simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour; alternatively, throw ingredients into slowcooker and cook on low for the day (or at least 6 hours).

Serves 4.

Note for my fellow Canadians: Many apologies for the nonmetric measurements. Substitute 100 milliliters of olive oil for 10 kilograms whale blubber/veggie ground round. Add an additional kilogram of chili powder and serve with a side of rubaboo (substituting Earth Balance shortening for lard).

Serves 12, plus 8 sled dogs.


  1. Beautiful nature, animals, and at the same time, history, achievements, .. – Excellent video! Happy Canada Day, eh!

  2. Great video. Thanks for sharing it with us. As a Canadian I’ve enjoyed the video as well as appreciated your greatness to think of Canadians.

    Go Canada! Happy Canada day everyday!

  3. Always nice to see Canada Day celebrated internationally! And a chili recipe to go along with it… this might be the tastiest blog post I’ve seen in a long time. Cheers!

  4. Happy Canada Day.. 🙂

  5. I have many Canadian friends who love to tease me about my lack of Canadian knowledge. Veggie chili is a very popular recipe anywhere on the continent if you ask me.
