Fabulous Vegetarian (Vegan) Chili

I love chili con carne, but this wonderful vegetarian chili is almost enough to make me convert! It's really hearty, and it's perfect with a side of nice, moist corn bread.

Notes


  • You can also thump it into a 10 cup casserole dish and bake it at 350F degrees for about 40 minutes, instead of simmering it.

     

  • The cocoa gives it a sort of dark thrilling timbre, reminiscent of mole sauce from mexico. Don't use too much, though, or it's kind of heavy tasting.

     

  • If you like a Santa Fe style, add some frozen corn kernels to it with the tomato sauce, but skip the cocoa.

Cooking Time1 hr 20 min

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 2 onions, coarsely chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, coarsely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 green capsicum (bell pepper), chopped
  • 1 19-ounce can tomatoes, any style
  • 2 tablespoons ground chili powder or crushed chiles
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red chili pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 cups cooked beans
  • 1 1/2 cup tomato sauce

Instructions

  1. Heat oil.
     
  2. Cook onion, celery, garlic, and bell pepper until soft, about 15 minutes.
     
  3. Add tomatoes;  if they're whole, break 'em up with a fork.
     
  4. Add chilis, cocoa powder, cumin, salt, sugar, chili powder, and cinnamon and cook for about 5 minutes.
     
  5. Add tomato sauce and beans.
     
  6. Simmer for about 1 hour. If it looks too damn liquid, add a can of tomato paste, or throw in a handful of barley and continue to cook for about half an hour or until the barley is cooked, but this shouldn't be necessary.
