    Moody's Note:

    This is a quick, extremely healthy vegan version of traditional chili. You can't even tell the difference! It came from the website for Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine originally, but I tweaked a little to make it even healthier.

      This is an exceptional recipe! I normally prefer chili with BITE, but this recipe is SO EASY and FLAVORFUL that it is a crowd pleaser! I am not Vegan, nor are the crowds I serve it to, but I have had no complaints on this chili to date and with the TVP, no one even realizes they aren't eating meat! :) Also great on the pocketbook if making chili in quantity. It only takes about $0.45 worth of TVP...way better than the price of ground meat. I have customized it to my preferences...Methods are the same, but here is the ingredient list I use... 1/2 can Veggie Broth 1 c. TVP 1 Onion 1/2 each Gr, Orange, Yellow & Red Bell Peppers 4 cloves Garlic, Minced 1 1/2 can Veggie Broth 1 can Great Norther Beans 1 can Kidney Beans 2 cans Stewed Tomatoes w/Onion/Celery/Pepper 3.5 T Chili Powder 3 T Paprika 1 T Oregano 1 T Cumin 1 t Cayenne 1/2 t White Pepper Salt Pepper

      Very good recipe thanks! I used quinoa in place of tvp and it turned out fab. Even my non vegan bf liked it with a little soy cheese melted on top :)

      Tweaked this recipe a bit, mostly to add heat, but overall this is a great recipe. The fresh corn really makes a difference. Freezes wonderfully, so it's a great way to enjoy fresh summer veggies during chili season. Even my husband and son, both of whom consider a slab of meat to be a "meal," rave about this dish.
