Vegetarian Chili

It s cold outside.. so …. I think I am going to make this chili recipe. I posted this in January 2017. I have updated that original post

I love a thick delicious chili. Most often, we eat it with ground beef but I do really like a vegetarian chili. There are many options to make this… you can follow this recipe & have it vegan, *you can add any ground meat you want…beef, chicken…just sauté the meat with the onions & cook until the meat is completely cooked stirring often, *you can use a vegan ground round if you like
I love the flavour that a can of Campbells Tomato Soup adds to my chili. I have tried making chili without it & I really prefer adding it!
This is good served alone in a bowl.. with a delicious fresh bun..these Feather Buns go with this nicely, also Corn Muffins are great with chili. I served this with some corn tortillas that I had heated up in a skillet
Here is the recipe
Ingredients
2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1 stalk of celery, diced
1 yellow pepper,  diced
3/4 cup frozen corn kernels
1 zucchini,  diced
1 can red kidney beans, rinsed
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 28 oz can of diced tomatoes and the juice
1/2 cup of water
1 can of condensed tomato soup ** I use Campbells Condensed Tomato Soup
1 tbsp chili powder ( or as much as you like)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
Method
In a medium-sized saucepan:
  1. Sauté the onion & garlic in the 2 tbsp of olive oil until translucent of course it started to brown…which is ok!!
  2. Add the celery & continue to sauté until the celery starts to cook & becomes translucent
  3. Put the yellow pepper & zucchini in the pan, mix well. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients & mix well
  5. Bring to a boil & then reduce thereat so that the chili is simmering with a medium bubble
  6. Cover & simmer for about an hour, stirring often

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
