DIRECTIONS

  • Mince or pulverize garlic.
  • Chop onions.
  • Chop half of the onion into small (1 cm by 1 cm) square pieces.
  • Chop the other half into strips (1/2 cm by 8 cm).
  • This is so you get aesthetically pleasing "strips" of onion in the chili.
  • Chop the other fresh vegetables into small pieces.
  • Saute (covered) the onions, garlic and carrots on medium heat for about three minutes.
  • Add the remaining vegetables and continue to saute until the onions are just starting to soften, but before they become soft (about five minutes).
  • Add the water and the Vegetarian Chili Mix (entire boxes) and the beans.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Add canned vegetables and tomato paste.
  • Add spices to taste and stir thoroughly.
  • Simmer on very low heat for at least 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Let cool to warm before serving.
  • Tastes best if re-heated.
  • Serve with grated"sharp" cheddar cheese and generously buttered bread.
