Vegan Chili Recipe
Yum

A vegan chili recipe 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.

 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!

I love using my new Cuisinart Slow Cooker!    (I gave away my old one!)

Not only is it a slow cooker, but it's a Multicooker!

That means it can be used to quickly brown or sauté the meat  (up to 400 °F) before setting it to slow cook (at various temps) ...

and there's a 'steam' option as well!

With a 24-hour timer and an automatic Keep Warm feature, I LOVE this! Click on the photo for more information!!!!! You'll love using this, just like I do!

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

  1. If you don't have chipolte chili powder or smoked paprika, just add a bit extra chili powder. Use regular paprika.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!

 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!
