A vegan chili recipe, aka veganes Chili, sounds impossible! It needs meat, right? Nope, it doesn't! Really. This one tastes that good.

Even my hubby likes this one! (And he's the original German meat-and-potato fan!) The recipe below is a combination of several recipes I found online.

I combined the best of each to create this chili so that fits into my vegan soup recipes.

Delicious! Chili! Vegan! Yummy! Even your nonvegan friends will like this.

 Not only does it taste fabulous, it's so easy to make because it's a crockpot chili! Just throw it all the ingredients for this vegan chili in the crockpot and walk away till dinner.

Now, that's my kind of cooking!

A bit of this and a bit of that ...

  • If you don't have chipolte chili powder or smoked paprika, just add a bit extra chili powder. Use regular paprika.
  • You choose how 'beany' you want your chili. Add only 1 can or 3 or 4. One way I often extend the leftovers is to add an extra can of tomatoes and beans. New taste. New meal.
  • Change up the types of veggies added. Omit the carrots. Omit the celery. Add mushrooms. You choose.

Here's my granddaughter, Lydia, helping me make this for our family supper. Everyone thought it was great!

BTW, you can't call this a Chili Con Carne, because that translates as "Chili with meat" ... this is just "Chili" ... but a really gooood bowl of chili, it is!

Making this delicious vegan chili with my granddaughter Lydia for a family dinner!

Oma says:

 Even though my hubby is a 'German meat-and-potatoes' man, through and through, I throw in these vegan and vegetarian soup recipes every now and then. 

I'm often pleasantly surprised when he reaches for seconds! This time, he had thirds as well!

Oma's Vegan Chili Recipe (Crockpot Recipe) 

A vegan chili recipe, aka veganes Chili, sounds impossible! It needs meat, right? Nope, it doesn't! Really. This one tastes that good.

Even my hubby likes this one! (And he's the original German meat-and-potato fan!) The recipe below is a combination of several recipes. I combined the best of each to create this chili so that fits into my vegan soup recipes.

Prep Time

15 minutes

Slow Cook Time

6 - 8 hours

Total Time

6 - 8 hours

Servings:

Makes 8 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled
  • 1 onion
  • 2 carrots, peeled
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 2 - 3 peppers, any colors
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 3 (19-ounce) cans beans, drained, kidney or mixed
  • 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika powder
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa
  • 2 - 3 cups water
  • 1 vegetarian bouillon cube (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • (salt, pepper to season at end)

Instructions:

  1. Cut veggies into bit-sized pieces.
  2. Put everything into the crockpot (slow cooker) 
  3. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or until veggies are soft. Season with additional salt and pepper as needed.

Notes/Hints:

  • With many 'meat substitutes' available, there's a plant-based 'ground beef'  that would work well in this recipe. Just make sure that you follow the cooking time that the package says. The one I've seen says not to overcook and their cooking time is only 2 minutes. So, you would add it just at the end to pretty well just heat it up.
