Hearty & Delicious Vegan Chili Recipe

Hearty, vegan chili by http://www.iVeganYou.com


1 onion
1 red bell pepper roasted
I jalapeño roasted
1 poblano pepper roasted
1 ear of corn roasted and cut off the cob (optional)
4 cloves garlic
15 oz. can kidney beans
15 oz. can black beans (or pinto, etc.)
15 oz. can diced tomatoes (I use petite diced)
6 oz. tomato paste
6 oz. can of green chilies
2 cups vegetable broth
2 Tbsp. chili powder (use mild, or cut back if desired)
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. smoked paprika
1 tsp. oregano
Salt to taste

Toppings of choice: green onion, avocado, cilantro, vegan sour cream, etc.

Optional: cayenne pepper or chipotle powder for a kick

Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. Roast all peppers at 425 until tender and slightly chard (about 12 minutes, this creates a smokey flavor and adds complexity to the dish). Remove from oven and dice once cooled and set aside.

In a large sauce pan over medium heat caramelize garlic and onions until a translucent golden color is obtained (12 minutes). Once the onions cook down add in cumin, paprika, chili powder and oregano. Stir often and cook for another 2 minutes. Now add your veggie broth and bring to a low simmer. Add in all other ingredients. Simmer on low for 25-30 minutes allowing the excess liquid to cook off and chili to thicken. Serve in big bowl to allow room for fun garnishes and don’t forget the vegan sour cream!

  1. I love chili anytime of year. I’ve mostly made it very similar, but I’m going to add roasted peppers. Also look forward to trying the vegan sour cream plus the garnish. When I subscribed Prince charming didn’t arrive, but he did text me if that counts.

  2. Perfect timing. I’ve been thinking a lot about making chili from scratch lately, and this is a great looking recipe. Looks so much better than the canned stuff I was raised with. Plus, one pot meals are my bag, baby. Thanks!

  3. Just went to the store got everything and made it, wow it’s so good! Such a nice change from my regular chili, I changed a couple things but kept it close to yours, soooooo great 🙂
