Dinner Tonight: Hearty Vegetarian 3 Bean Chili

If you landed here from a Facebook ad about a drink for easy slim-down, that’s not my ad, and I have no idea why it’s linking to my blog! That said, I’m happy to support you with weight loss.. Check out The Last (and best) Diet You’ll Ever Need and Healthy Smoothies for Weight Loss.


 

It’s a whopping 50 degrees in LA today, which is a perfect excuse to whip up a batch of delicious, hearty, and warming chili. I think this may be as close as we get to winter in these parts (but who’s complaining?), so I’ll take what I can get.  

This chili is super fast and easy to make, so it’s a perfect weeknight meal.

You can make it with or without a fake meat — I usually go without, but was feeling extra punchy today, so I added some yummy veggie chorizo.

*Note: Since this recipe relies heavily on canned goods, make sure to look for organic, low-sodium, and BPA-free!! 

Vegan Three Bean Chili

Serves 4

GF, V

3 tbsp olive oil
1 white onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno, minced
1 package vegan chorizo (optional)
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tsp cayenne pepper
3 14 oz. cans organic beans (I used one can each cannelini, kidney, and pinto beans, but you can use whatever beans you have around!), rinsed and drained
1 24 oz. can crushed organic tomatoes
1 cup vegetable broth (add a little more if you want your chili on the soupier side)
Sea salt to taste

Heat olive oil in a large pot, add onions, garlic, and jalapeño. Sauté over medium heat until onions are soft. Add spices and stir. Add beans, tomatoes, and broth. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer until flavor are combined. Top with chopped parley or cilantro.  Enjoy!

    Should I drain the beans, or do I include the liquid in the pot. This sounds delicious.

      Great question! Yes, always rinsed and drained. I’ll add that to the directions ; )
      Enjoy the recipe!

    Where do you find veggie chorizo and what is the brand? I’d love to make chili and usually use burger but it is just so darned expensive now, I have been making white chili chicken. But I love the veggie burgers and sausage patties so veggie chorizo sounds delish!!

      Hi Kelly!
      I like Frieda’s Soyrizo, and the Trader Joe’s Soyrizo. Both are gluten free and absolutely delicious!
