Vegan Chili Recipe
Hello & Happy Tuesday!!
There are many recipes that should be considered staples in your cooking routine…
One, …is vegan chili!
While I was never a chili person before, nor am I today even a “bean” person, but I love this recipe for vegan chili packed with veggies and quinoa!
What I love about chili is that all of the ingredients are accessible, affordable, and the entire recipe takes minimal cooking experience. Simply throw all the ingredients together and let the ingredients combine for as long as you can. What’s even more fab about this recipe?! You can make it even more nutrient dense by throwing in whatever veggies you like, make it in bulk to enjoy throughout the week, and even freeze it for later use.
Packed to the max with veggies and flavor, with a hint of fire..
You can’t lose with this classic vegan Chili recipe!

- Rinse all of the beans to remove excess sodium and then throw them in a large pot on medium heat with the crushed tomatoes and precooked quinoa. Now add the onions and peppers to the large pot. As everything begin to simmer add the cilantro to the pot. For the best flavor let simmer for a few hours. To serve top with white onion, fresh tomatoes, avocado, cheese, jalapeños and sour cream!
I cooked my quinoa in advance. Simply rinse, and then throw into a pot with water. Wait til the little tails come out to remove from heat.
You can place the chilis in adobo sauce in the food processor if you don't want to dice them by hand.
For more flavor you can bake the onions in the oven for a more smokey flavor
