I am new to a vegan lifestyle and I am new to this wonderful forum. So I made this chilli today without really following any recipe and even my mom(who is a meat eater) told me this was delicious and I felt I had to share this recipe with other vegans/vegetarians. Its insanely easy and very filling.
What I used:
about 1/2 cup diced onion
1 package Yves ground "beef"
1 can Progresso Lentil soup(I know sounds kinda weird to add to chilli but it made it yummy and added fiber/protein)
Tomato chunks(I used canned tomato chunks but next time I will use fresh)
First I sautéed the onions and then I added a whole package of Yves ground "beef" and I added a spoonful of earth balance butter and then I added a whole can of Progresso vegetable classics lentil soup after I drained some of the liquid and then I added the tomato chunks and then I just added Chilli powder to taste.I absolutely LOVED it!! It made quite a bit so I can have it for at least three meals.
like I said I'm new to veganism and I would love to hear any suggestions on how I could improve this recipe to perhaps make it a little more healthy. :)
I recently made chili and threw some quinoa in there- yum! I also added a lot of random chopped veggies- zucchini, carrots, bell peppers, etc.
I do love the traditional "meaty" chili with TVP or soy crumbles, beans, and tomatoes though!
