Healthy Recipes - Vegetarian Chili

Vegetarian Chili

Vegetarian chili

Whether you’re a full-time vegetarian or simply enjoy a meatless meal now and then, look for recipes that are full of flavor and low in fat.

Because strict vegetarian meals don’t contain animal foods, they’re cholesterol-free. While meatless recipes tend to be low in total fat, saturated fat, and calories, this isn’t always the case. Be sure to check nutrition details per serving.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup textured soy protein

  • 7/8 cup boiling water

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 28-oz. can diced tomatoes

  • 1 19-oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 2 tbsp. chili powder

  • 1 tbsp. cumin

Directions

Reconstitute textured soy protein with boiling water. Heat oil in large pot. Sauté onion and green pepper until soft, about five minutes. Add garlic and cook briefly. Add tomatoes, beans, chili powder, cumin, and soy protein. Stir. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for about 30 to 45 minutes, until chili thickens.
