Today was a cold day, and on days like these a nice bowl of vegan chili definitely comes to mind. I'm not sure if there are any restaurants in the area that make vegan chili, but I decided to make my own since I wanted to add specific ingredients and make it spicy. This recipe does not require a lot of money, time, or ingredients. I spent a total of $15 on ingredients, and bought everything organic.
I used Beyond Beef Beefy Crumble for the meat. It is a truly amazing product, and I did a review on it in a previous post. It's high in protein and tastes unbelievable. I am constantly asked about vegan sources of protein, and this product is just another great example of a high quality vegan protein source.
There are many great vegan companies that make meat substitutes, so you can add your favorite to the chili. If you would like to have a milder version you can leave out the cayenne, but I think that's what makes this recipe great. It's one of my daughter's favorite cold weather meals, and it's packed with so much protein, fiber, flavor, vitamins, and nutrients. My husband likes to have it with vegan grilled cheese sandwiches or cornbread.
This recipes uses eight ingredients, and after combining all of your ingredients and letting them simmer for about half an hour, you are on your way to enjoying a great bowl of vegan chili! It is especially great after a day or so in the fridge after all of the flavors marinate. Absolutely delicious.
Make a rich, spicy, filling, high protein, bowl of vegan chili using only eight ingredients!
