Vegan Friday April 12, 2009

Posted by life2d in main course, Vegan.

We used to eat vegan meals on Wednesday and Friday but not so much recently. I found this recipe for a vegan chili in my draft folders. I remember being surprised at how good it turned out. I don’t have a picture of it, but I’ll try to remember to take one next time I’ll make it.

Low-Fat vegetarian chili

  • 1  15-1/2-ounce can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1  15-ounce can great northern beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1  14-1/2-ounce can low-sodium tomatoes, undrained and cut up
  • 1  8-ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1  cup water
  • 3/4  cup chopped green sweet pepper
  • 1/2  cup chopped onion
  • 1  tablespoon chili powder
  • 1  teaspoon sugar
  • 1  teaspoon snipped fresh basil or 1/2 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
  • 1/2  teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4  teaspoon salt
  •   Dash ground red pepper
  • 2  cloves garlic, minced

In a large saucepan combine kidney beans, great northern beans, undrained tomatoes, tomato sauce, water, green pepper, onion, chili powder, sugar, basil, cumin, salt, ground red pepper, and garlic. Bring to boiling; reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serve chili with hot cooked rice.
