Vegetarian Chili Recipe– It’s all in the Seasoning!

Here’s a great vegetarian chili recipe that everyone around our house loves. You’ll find that it’s not only packed with vegetable fiber from the beans but it has a good amount of protein and is low glycemic! It’s not only healthy, it tastes great!

So, why another vegetarian chili recipe? Well this one is different from any other chili recipe you’ve ever tasted. You can adjust the seasonings to suit your taste perfectly. If you don’t measure the ingredients exactly, there is no harm done. In fact, this recipe is very adaptable and almost foolproof.

You may find that the ingredients are similar to other chili’s true, they are. Every vegetarian chili recipe has beans, onions and probably garlic. Many have carrots, celery and tomatoes. But as I said, the seasoning for this chili is very different and makes it really good! So lets get started.

Here’s the ingredients list for the vegetarian chili recipe:

2 – 14 ounce cans pinto beans (you can also use kidney beans or black beans)
(If you cooked your own beans, use 3 cups cooked beans)
1 large onion (chopped),
2 or 3 large carrots (chopped or grated – you can also use a sweet potato – 1 medium sized potato grated),
2 or 3 stalks celery chopped,
1 large can chopped tomatoes (28 ounce),
2 or 3 cloves garlic chopped.
Secret seasoning (see below)
VARIATIONS – Optional – 1 block firm tofu cut in ½ inch pieces – to be added for the last five minutes of cooking. You can also add a small can of chopped mild green chilis, chopped red bell pepper or a package of frozen corn if you like when you add the beans.  Sun dried tomatoes are also good.

What to do with the ingredients to make your vegetarian chili recipe:

Put tomatoes and all vegetables (except beans) in a pot and bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer for about 15 minutes, until vegetables have softened. Add beans and variations (see below) plus secret seasonings and cook for about 5 more minutes. Add tofu if desired and simmer a few more minutes.

Vegetarian chili recipe secret seasonings

Before the last five minutes of cooking, add the secret ingredients to your vegetarian chili recipe. Buy some "Paul Prudhomme Meat Magic" seasoning available at most grocery stores or you can use your own favorite Mexican seasoning or chili powder and cumin.  Start with about a teaspoon of seasoning, then get out your favorite barbecue sauce and start with about 4 tablespoons to as much as ¼ cup.

Continue tasting the vegetarian chili as you add the seasonings until it tastes right. Simmer the chili for about 5 more minutes (after adding optional tofu) and enjoy! You can add grated cheese when serving as well as some fresh salsa. If you like your chili hot, add some Tabasco sauce, a small can of chopped hot chilis or Mexican hot sauce.
