Vegetarian Chili

Whether you’re a full-time vegetarian or simply enjoy a meatless meal now and then, you can still enjoy recipes that are full of flavor.

Because strict vegetarian meals don’t contain animal foods, they’re cholesterol-free. While meatless recipes tend to be low in total fat, saturated fat, and calories, this isn’t always the case. Be sure to check nutrition details per serving.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup textured soy protein

  • 7/8 cup boiling water

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes

  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 2 tbsp chili powder

  • 1 tbsp cumin

Directions

Reconstitute textured soy protein with boiling water.

Heat oil in large pot. Sauté onion and green pepper until soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook briefly. Add tomatoes, beans, chili powder, cumin, and soy protein. Stir. Bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and let simmer for about 30 to 45 minutes, until chili thickens.
