Vegetarian Chili….yum

November 3, 2009

Every Fall, I get in the mood for chili. Since I didn’t grow up eating it, I have a very unofficial approach to chili throw a bunch of things together and taste constantly to prevent a crisis. So, the recipe below is a bit of a mess, and ridiculously simple, but people tend to love it.

Vegetarian Chili

  • 4 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 tb of olive oil
  • 1 large can of crushed tomatoes
  • 2 chopped green peppers
  • 2 cans of kidney beans
  • 2 cans of navy beans
  • 2 cans of cannellini beans
  • 2 tb of cumin
  • 3 tb of chili powder
  • 3 tp of hot sauce, or more to taste
  • soy crumbles (optional)
  • salt/pepper
  • Garnish with shredded cheese, chopped green onions, sour cream, etc

  1. Heat olive oil, saute in garlic, in a large sauce pan. Stir in green peppers and saute.
  2. Pour in tomatoes, beans, and spices. If you would like soy crumbles, throw them in now.
  3. Simmer for 1-2 hours. Stir once in awhile so it doesn’t burn too much on the bottom.
  4. Add Salt and Pepper, and garnish.

This is very good reheated.
