This is a yummy and meatless chili recipe that I found in a magazine years ago. I've tweaked it gradually to suit my taste. Optional condiments such as chopped cilantro, low-fat sour cream and chopped green onion make a nice addition.
Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté 3 minutes or until tender. Add 2 cups water, 1 cup wine and the next 8 ingredients (through cannellini beans), stirring to combine.
Combine remaining cup of water and tomato paste in a bowl, stirring with a whisk until blended. Stir tomato paste mixture into beans. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes or until heated through.
Top each serving with shredded cheese and other condiments as desired.
