    jellie's Note:

    This recipe was adapted by my mother and myself from meat chili. We fed it to my dad and only told him afterwards it wasn't meat - he couldn't tell the difference! This is a fast and filling meal and is even better, cold or warm, the next day! I serve leftovers with tortilla chips or in a wrap. Also good with sour cream and/or cheese on top.

      My whole family loved this recipe which happens to include two very serious carnivores. Plus it's easy to make. We added 1/2 tsp cumin and oregano for some extra spice.

      Excellent vegetarian chilli that everyone enjoyed. I did cut down the chili powder to a heaped tsp for a mild chilli as my toddler was eating this. Went down an absolute treat.

      Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the directions should read 1 1/2 cups of rehydrated TVP, not 1 1/2 cups TVP rehydrated. I only add a portion of the TVP stated as the chili looked entirely too thick more like a casserole than a chili. The result was also a little bland so I added some extra chili powder and 1 tsp of cumin. Though the final dish was fine, no one was fooled. will continue to experiment with this recipe as it has great possibilities.
