Meatless Chili


I have a vegan friend who can always be counted on to serve up yummy vegan food. This recipe for vegan veggie chili is an awesomely delicious, extremely wholesome dish. Pairing it with a good homemade cornbread recipe, it becomes a perfect protein meal, alive with color, fiber, taste, and nutrition.

  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes

  • 1 (8 ounce) container firm tofu, drained and cut into 1/2-inch cubes

  • 3 cups water

  • 1 ½ cups chopped bell peppers

  • 1 ¼ cups drained canned corn kernels

  • 1 ¼ cups chopped carrots

  • ½ cup Peppers, hot chili, green, canned, pods, excluding seeds, solids and liquids

  • 1 tablespoon onion powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder

  • 1 ½ tablespoons chili powder

  • 1 ½ tablespoons ground cumin

  • 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 (15 ounce) can lima beans, drained

  • 1 tablespoon original or unsweetened Almond Breeze Almondmilk


  1. Combine tomatoes, tofu, water, bell peppers, corn, carrots, chile peppers, onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, and cumin in a large pot over high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are tender, 30 to 45 minutes.

  2. Add kidney and lima beans; continue simmering until heated through, 10 to 15 minutes. If chili sauce is too liquidy, stir in vegetable protein until desired thickness is reached.

Cook's Note:

You can use soybeans in place of limas.
