Two Bean Chili (Vegetarian)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by smellyvegetarian

Yes, yet another vegetarian chili recipe. The beauty of this one is it is REALLY yummy, has a decent amount of protein, and only simmers 25-30 minutes! It is definitely a favorite in our house, especially with cornbread. From Best Kept Secrets of Healthy Cooking by Sandra Woodruff.

I must say this chili is so easy and so good that it is now going to be my go-to chili recipe! I used 2 tablespoons chili powder and found it was quite spicy. (Next time I'll just use one and put some hot sauce on the table for the others.) I sauted the onions and peppers before adding them, and deglazed the pan with a splash of red wine. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. I might use diced tomatoes next time because I like them chunky. But as posted it is so good and so healthy!

  2. 2. Add all of the remaining ingredients to the TVP mixture and stir to mix. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes or until the veggies are tender.
