This is a delicious colourful chili with a perfect blend of many vegetables with tofu in a thick spicy tomato base. This original recipe came from Runner's World magazine, although I have altered it to suit my likings. Frying tofu gives it a more meat like texture. For those who like chili very spicy, more chili powder may be added.

I made this exactly as stated except I used a red bell pepper (more antioxidents). The flavor & texture was perfect!! Be sure and lightly brown the tofu as directed. Thanks LU2Bake for the recipe.
