Some people are avoiding soy
products. But most "fake meat" products use soy, including
many vegetarian chili recipes. Here's a very tasty, but mild,
veggie chili that just uses beans.
1 can organic pinto beans
1/2 cup sliced white
1/4 cup organic crushed
1/2 cup organic frozen corn
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/16 tsp black pepper
2 tsp light olive oil
optional: diced onions, to
Rinse pinto beans in a
colander. Cut up sliced mushrooms into bite size pieces. Put
frozen corn in a pot covered with water and heat to thaw and
heat corn. Drain off water.
Put crushed tomatoes in a
blender and pulse to a thick sauce. You can add more crushed
tomatoes to your chili if you like them.
Mix all spices with a little
water to make a paste. Add oil. Stir it up well, and add any
extra water to get the consistency you want.
Put all ingredients in a pot,
mix them up well and heat up.
To make it more economical,
cook dry beans. This has a great chili taste, but is mild. If
you love hot and spicy, add your favorite peppers, etc.
