Vegan Chili for MEAT FREE MONDAYS

216 Shares

Easy to Make Vegan Chili for a twist on MEAT Free Mondays. Then I wondered if Jeff would love it as much as the meat version that I sometimes make with turkey.

Chili could not be more American then mac & cheese and chocolate chip cookies! Americans have a hand full of dishes that are considered classics.

No matter what part of the USA, chili has been made in every state. They even have an event called “The Great Chili Cookoff” which is the best of show of a chili competition.

I decide to make my own version of chili with a vegan twist. It is now part of my collection of classic American recipes. My Vegan Chili can now be a regular dish for us on MEAT Free Mondays. I’ve been doing MEAT Free Mondays for about 10 years. It is a cause I truly believe in to make our planet a better place.

Step by Step – Vegan Chili

  1. Chop onion and carrots and sauté in a pot with a little bit of olive oil.
  2. Once you have drained the bean pour into the pot and mix.
  3. Drain the corn and mix into the pot.
  4. Pour all your spices and chopped parsley into the pot and mix.
  5. Take your can of stew tomatoes and ½ jar of tomato sauce and mix.
  6. Bring to boil and then simmer on low for about 1 ½ hour.
  7. Top with avocado, drizzle with olive oil and squeeze some lime.

Variations

I sometimes add more vegetables to the mix or grain.

  • diced sweet potatoes
  • diced white potatoes
  • rice or quinoa

Ways to Serve

You can aways serve Vegan Chili on top of a bake potato or on top of some nachos for Sunday Football. My favorite is to make a burrito with the Vegan Chili filling and salsa on top.

Tip

You don’t have to cook the Vegan Chili for a long time but if I cook it on low for about 1 hour, it will really enrich the flavors to fuse them together.
