January 23, 2019

This chili is absolutely delicious. 

It has the full flavor oF any meat packed chili, with none of the guilt. ;)

Yummy, filling and perfect for warm winter vibes! :)

This chili is fully loaded with 3 beans, veggies, "meat" and spice, topped with sour cream and diced red onion for fresh bites.

Cook time: 45ish minutes



2 tsp olive oil/ grapeseed oil/ avocado oil

1/4 cup yellow onion, small dice

1-2 tsp minced garlic 

1-2 Beyond Meat burger patties (they will crumble like ground beef so add as much/ little as you want)

[feel free to use real ground beef here]

1 tablespoon tomato paste

1/3 cup vegetable/ no- chicken stock 

1 1/2- 2 cups diced tomatoes (can used canned)

1 1/2 cup Black beans (if canned, rinse first) (If fresh, make sure to prep as needed)

1 1/2 cup Garbanzo beans (if canned, rinse first) (If fresh, make sure to prep as needed)

1 1/2 red kidney beans (if canned, rinse first) (If fresh, make sure to prep as needed)

Step 1: Heat oil in a deep pan or pot for about 1 1/2 minutes on medium high heat 

Step 2:  Stir onions and garlic into hot oil and mix until onions are soft/ translucent (4-5 mins)

Step 3:  Reduce to medium heat, add tomato paste and stir

Step 4:  Add "burger patties" and using a spatula, break down until it resembles ground beef, and mix for about  5 minutes

Step 5:  Add diced tomatoes, stock and then stir for 2 minutes

Step 6:  Add beans, bell peppers and stir

Step 7:  Add all the spices, seasonings, harissa, soy sauce, mustard and mix until incorporated

Step 8:  Let simmer for 25ish minutes, mixing throughout. 

(If it starts to seem dry, add some vegetable stock, water, or my favorite vegetarian no-chicken broth

Step 9: Adjust the seasoning how you'd like it, more salt, more pepper, more cayenne, etc and give final stirs

Step 10: Serve and garnish with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle red onions on top


Eat and enjoy!
