Simple Vegan Chili

Simple Vegan Chili

Introduction

This is about the easiest method of making chili that I know of. It's great with cornbread and some veggies on the side. We almost always double or quadruple this recipe because it freezes well.

I've made some optional suggestions if you want to change things around. We always come back to the same recipe though.

Ingredients

    1/2 cup dry Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP) granules -- you can find these in the bulk bin at health food stores for less than $2/pound or in small bags by Bob's Red Mill in the natural food section of most large grocery stores

    3 cups cooked or 2 cans pinto beans (drained and rinsed if canned)

    1 28 oz can diced tomatoes

    1 Chili Seasoning packet -- I use generic from the grocery store, is just a combination of spices, usually about $0.33.

Directions

Bring 1 cup of water to boil in large pot. Add TVP granules and chili seasoning packet. When water and seasoning absorbed, add tomatoes with juice and beans. Add water if mixture seems too thick.

Simmer for 20 minutes to allow flavors to meld.

Serving is 1/4 of total recipe.

Add-ins: fresh or frozen veggies (peppers and onions), extra seasoning, dried chipotle chile, cocoa powder (1 tbs) or corn.

Options: Use Morningstar Farms or Lightlife veggie ground in place of TVP (more expensive). Use black beans or kidney beans for pintos. Use Rotel for plain tomatoes (spicier).
