Vegan/Vegetarian Chili Perfect For Chilly Weather
In a large pot over medium heat, add olive oil, diced onion and minced garlic
Cook onion and garlic for 3 minutes (be sure to not let the garlic burn or brown)
Add diced green pepper, cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently
If using a crock pot, transfer cooked onion, garlic, and pepper and add canned ingredients and vegetable broth.
If not using a crock pot, add vegetable broth, canned beans, tomato sauce and diced tomato to the pot. Stir to mix up all ingredients.
Reduce heat if necessary, but bring pot to a simmer and let cook for at least an hour.
Simmer for 3-5 hours for best results. Add frozen corn and warm before serving.
Top with nutritional yeast/dairy-free cheese/fresh avocado/green onion.
Enjoy with tortilla chips!
To make chili spicier, add more than 1/8 tsp of cayenne pepper.
Frozen corn is optional. Do not use canned.
Finely minced garlic works best.
