Hearty Meatless Chili

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Grace4Gayle

A thick rich chili, where you won't miss the meat at all. I make double batches and freeze it for quick meals during the winter. The combination of veggies makes this taste so good. I usually puree all the veggies together to make a rich broth and and sneak the veggies in for unsuspecting kids. Try it. You'll like it. And it's easy on the budget.

Excellent! Added more broth just to make a little more soup like. Topped with grated cheddar, minced onion and cilantro. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
