Introduction

This 'chili' I made by accident while trying to make a veggie spaghetti sauce. I found the texture to be more like chili, so I just added some beans and spices, and voila! Chili!

Ingredients

    2 cups cabbage, shredded
    1 cup onion, shredded
    4-5 ribs of celery, shredded
    4-5 large carrots, shredded
    1 green or red pepper, diced
    1 can sweet corn
    2 cans of beans of your choice (kidney, chickpeas, great northern, or bean salad. I use whatever is handy.)
    1/2 - 3/4 lb lean ground beef, browned and drained of fat (optional, and you will have to add calories etc)
    1 cup brown rice
    1 can diced tomatoes
    1 can tomato sauce
    Salt & pepper
    Chili powder
    Oregano
    Basil
    Parsley

Directions

Put all veggies to be shredded through the processor (to save time).
Add all veggies to your crockpot or a large pot (including peppers and corn).
Add the beans and rice.
(Here would be the time to add the beef, if using).
Cover with tomatoes and tomato sauce and season with salt, pepper, oregano, basil, parsley and chili powder to taste.
Still well to combine all ingredients
Cover and cook on high 3-4 hours or on low 6-8 hours or until veggies and rice are cooked through.

I use it as a filling for tacos sometimes. I'm sure it would also be awesome as a dip with tortillas or nachos as well. Also great on it's own with a piece of cornbread. YUM! :)

  • I made this without meat. My family melted cheese on it and ate it with Tostito Scoops. They loved it this way. I opted for the lower cal version of no cheese and chips and it was good that way too. - 1/22/08
