Best Darn Vegan Chili Ever (soy free)*

Submitted by: LEONALIONESS

Introduction

This is a complex, hearty chili full of different colors, textures and tastes. The spice variety means there are a lot of different mingled flavor notes adding some really nice depth. The serving size is generous, too. Great! This is a complex, hearty chili full of different colors, textures and tastes.

Ingredients

    5 oz. bag fresh spinach
    butternut squash (1 lb), peeled/cubed.
    2 cans black beans - no salt (30 oz. total)
    large can chopped tomatoes (28 oz total)
    2 c. vegetable broth
    1/4 c. dry bulgar wheat
    2 Tbs chili powder
    1 tsp. cumin
    1 Tbs red wine vinegar
    1 Tbs. crushed oregano
    1 Tbs. fresh ground pepper
    1/4 - 1/2 tsp ground cayenne
    dash of cinnamon
    sea salt or kosher salt to taste
    1 Tbs. dried onion
    1 tsp. garlic powder/granules

Directions

I make this the lazy way. :) Drain and rinse the beans. Peel and dice the squash.

Toss everything in a large pot on the stove. Heat on medium until the squash gets tender. Increase heat to a controlled boil (stir often so the bottom doesn't burn or stick) until chili thickens. Reduce heat and simmer.

This may be too bland for your tastes. Feel free to add more chili powder or cayenne. I added kosher salt due to liking salt and not really being worried about sodium. Your mileage may vary.

Serve with cornbread! I've got a great recipe for that, too, if you look. :D Best chili I've ever made. Enjoy!

Makes 8 generous 1 c. servings.
