Potassium-Rich Vegan Chili

Submitted by: TYDYDSMILE

Introduction

This is a great way to introduce yourself to tvp, or textured vegetable protein; it has little flavor of its own and takes on the consistancy of ground beef in this recipe. I've fooled many a meat-eater.

Ingredients

    1 can of black beans
    1 can of pinto beans
    1 can of kidney beans
    1 can of garbanzo beans
    1 cup dried lentils
    (You can use 4 or 5 cans of beans - the above are some I like to use)
    large can of cut tomatoes OR chopped fresh tomatoes - 5, 6, or more to taste
    1 bag of frozen corn (16 oz)
    approx. 1 1/2 cups of TVP (textured vegetable protien)
    2 med. sized onions, chopped
    3 orange sweet potatoes (the variety I used are called garnet yams)
    2 med. Carrots
    cut in fairly small pieces - quarter-sized
    olive oil/soy butter combination
    8 - 12 garlic cloves, minced
    a few chilis (or chili powder)
    seasoning salt
    cumin
    tumeric
    paprika
    black pepper


Directions

1. Saute the onions and minced garlic in the olive oil/soy butter until tender (I add some turmeric here so that the beans are very yellow)
2. Add the sweet potatoes
3. Add the beans (If you want to reduce the sodium be sure to rinse the beans - you will probably need to add water if you don't dump the entire contents of a can in the chili)
4. Add the corn
5. Add the tomatoes
6. Add the Textured Vegetable Protein (add slowly while stirring, and stop when you like the
consistency)
7. Add spices to taste (Lots of seasoning salt - I use simply organic,
but Lawry's will work just fine. (I SOMETIMES ADD THESE SPICES IN AS
I'M MIXING EVERYTHING TOGETHER)

It's nice with sour cream and cheese on top.
