More vegan chili

This is a new recipe:

1½ 28 oz. cans of whole tomatoes, ground/chopped in the food processor
2 onions, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and diced
1 bag of beef style crumbles (soy product)
2 15 oz. cans black beans
1-2 TBSP chili powder
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper

Sauté the onions and peppers in olive oil.  Add to pot.  Add tomatoes, and all other ingredients to pot.  Simmer for several hours.

I might add some brown sugar.  I have to taste it after an hour or two and decide.

Tasted great, very filling!  I only ate 3 of them, and that was plenty.

Vegan chili from Food.com


One thing they do not say is that most Worcestershire sauce is NOT vegan.  So, we're going to leave that out.  We're also leaving out the mushrooms because the kids don't like them.  Additionally, it's a good idea to add onions and garlic, even though they are not indicated in the recipe.  I cannot imagine chili without onions!  Marcus added two peppers instead of one, and also diced up some carrots to add texture.

I think this would be really good with some corn bread.  Vegan corn bread, coming up!
