Dad's Delicious Easy Vegan Chili

"Delicious bean, tomatoe & corn chili, adapted from a recipe which used to contain meat, but our family then became vegetarians! Lots of spice and flavor, not for those into mild foods. This is a fast & easy recipe, and you can experiment with more & different types of spices to tune it to your liking. My father has been making it for about 20 years now, and it is still awesome every time I eat it!"

  1. This was enjoyable and quite simple to prepare. I am not a vegan but am finding the benefits of eating less meat and being content with the many fruits, grains and vegetables the Lord Jesus has provided. I did however, put in too much cajun seasoning thinking the recommended amount was too little. This made it too spicy for my kids and I had to really encourage them to eat it allowing sips of their water or juice, whatever it was, after each bite. But I enjoyed the spice! If I make this again I might just leave out the cajun for my family and ad it just to my own bowel. Jesus bless you for sharing!


I try to eat things as close to their natural state as possible, with minimal processing. I believe in a low-sugar diet consisting mainly of an enormous variety of whole grains, fresh vegetables & fruits, lean proteins, nuts & beans. I grow what food I can, and I buy local and organic whenever possible, regardless of price, even though I am poor. I pay lots of attention to genetic modification of foods (which I avoid), pesticide & fertilizer use, & the toxicity of cooking utensils (such as most plastics & aluminum). I educate kids about recycling & composting, and I also work at a group home for teenagers.
