Roli Roti, the Bay Area food truck turned artisanal food production company, will offer the newest items in its line of premium products, Butcher’s by Roli Roti Bone Broth at 36 Costco stores in Northern California and Nevada.

Autumn Pumpkin Chili

This recipe comes from Roli Roti’s friend Lauren O’Connor, a registered dietician, nutritionist, and yoga instructor! As we fall into fall, she’s shared a recipe using one of our favorite autumn ingredients: pumpkins!
Here’s what Lauren had to say:

This satisfying, veggie-ful Pumpkin Chili is a perfect choice for the fall. The balance of ginger, cumin and turmeric add warmth and earthiness to the dish; each containing anti-inflammatory, healing qualities. Sumac adds a tangy, zesty appeal. No onions, no garlic, no spicy peppers — no problem! This acid-watcher friendly dish provides the warmth and full-bodied richness of a zesty chili (without the fear for heartburn). So if you’ve got GERD, or chronic acid reflux, this one’s for you! (Just swap the bell peppers for chopped cooked rainbow carrots if they are are trigger food).
