Vegetarian Chili for Everyone…even meatlovers

Here’s a hearty, healthy vegetarian chili recipe that’ll put a little pep in your step. If you’re a die-hard carnivore, your initial reaction is probably NOPE, but you should give meatless chili a try. I love a good meat chili, and when I get chili at a restaurant, I generally order a meat and bean chili, but at home I’m vegetarian chili all the way. Vegetarian chili just tastes great. I don’t miss the meat, and it’s super easy to make, and it’s a perfect way to clean out all the veggie odds and ends in your fridge. The key to a hearty no meat chili is lots of seasoning, onions, and peppers. I like to add at least two kinds of beans, and the veggies can be whatever you like…be creative!

How to Make Easy Vegetarian Chili

Slice, dice, mince, and chop all your ingredients. Prepping this dish is the most labor intensive part of this recipe. Once your ingredients are ready, it’s pretty eazy peezy.
Heat some oil in a large pot on medium heat.
Add in the onion and hot pepper and saute for 4-5 minutes.
Add in the rest of the peppers, garlic, and seasoning, then mix and saute for another couple minutes.
Add in everything else, plus about ½ a can of water. Be conservative with the water. The dish might seem overly thick, but a lot of water will be released from the veggies as the chili cooks. You can always add more water later.
Cover and bring the pot to a bubble, reduce the heat down to a simmer, and cook covered for about 45 minutes, adding water as needed and desired.
After 45 minutes give the dish a taste test and adjust seasoning, but remember, the flavor of the chili will intensify on its own as it sits.
Like any soup or stew or chili, it’s ideal if you make the dish ahead of time. It’ll get exponentially better as the days pass, so be sure to make a big pot of chili so you’ll have plenty of leftovers.
