Discover this Vegetarian Chili Recipe, ideal for your next meatless meal.
Pick over and wash 1 pound of red beans or kidney beans, and soak them overnight. Then cook 'em for about 1 hour, or until they're soft, in just enough water to cover the beans. Add 1 green pepper, 2 medium-sized onions, 2 stalks of celery and 6 peeled tomatoes (all chopped), then 1 1/2 cups of tomato puree, 2 minced garlic cloves, 1 tablespoon of vegetable salt, 1 teaspoon of chili powder (or more if you like it hot) and 1 teaspoon of oregano.
Let the vegetables cook just long enough to be slightly softened, while remaining crisp, then dish out your chili! Garnish it with a little grated cheese, and we guarantee you that you won't miss the "carne" at all!
