Vegan Chunky Chili

Rated as 4.32 out of 5 Stars

"If you are entertaining mixed palates, this meal will satisfy all tastes. A from-scratch chili that uses many different vegetables as well as beans, lentils and tofu to provide that 'full' feeling that chili with meat offers. Add fresh parsley and basil to taste, if desired. I prefer to let the chili sit overnight in the refrigerator before serving."

  3. Stir the tomatoes into the beans and add mushrooms, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, green beans, celery, onions and tofu. Season with salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and chili powder to taste. Simmer for 2 to 3 hours, or until desired consistency is reached.

I would call this Vegan Chili Soup. The flavour is great, but the only thing chunky about it was the tofu. Go with fresh garlic and a sprinkle of chili pepper flakes.

Awesome flavor... I omited the fresh tomatoes for canned (so you can eliminate step 2). I also use canned green beans from time to time, and sometimes add some corn. The only thing that I did ...

An excellent recipe, we didn't miss the meat at all, it was plenty flavorful. I didn't have a whole lot of time to make the recipe as stated. I used a can of red kidney beans, a can of white b...

Excellent! Everyone enjoyed it and we did not miss the meat at all (even our pickiest). My only extra ingredient was some cilantro, which I always include in my chili. Thanks for the recipe!

This was a great change from traditional chili. I did use canned beans and tomatoes instead of the soaked beans and fresh tomatoes. That made it easier and a lot less time consuming for me.
