    eliminate half of the carrots and half the black beans and add some brown lentils for a meaty taste and red beans for variety and richer flavor with little Nutritional difference except for more fibre The beans from cans
    should be well rinsed to remove salt.

    I would call this a minimalists vegetarian stew. How can you call it chili when the recipe only calls for a "pinch" of chili spice. All you need to do to create a vegetarian chili that you will love is to take your favorite meat chili recipe, leave out the meat and add any vege's that you love. - 7/29/09

    It was quick and easy with a great flavor, although I did add extra chili powder to it. Made it a little too spicy. Next time I think I will use a can of diced stewed tomatoes to make a more tomatoe-y base. Very yummy though, it went great with our baked potatoes. - 9/15/08

    This is good, but you can omit the oil by using o calorie / o fat vegetable oil spray. I saute and fry w/ it all the time.You will lower the fat grams and the calories if you do it this way! - 9/10/08

    I prefer a greater variety of beans and vegetables, as well as fresh oregano and thyme, in my vegetarian chili. - 3/9/09
