3 Bean Vegan Chili


Here's what you'll need:

  • 1 small onion, diced

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 3 stalks of celery, chopped - You can chop them as small as you like or even eliminate this.

  • Avocado Oil (or olive oil / any kind of cooking oil)

  • Seasonings - I don't measure! I used chili seasonings (chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano...) Salt & Pepper.

  • Tomato paste - About 2-3 tbsp. Again, I don't measure!

  • Vegetable broth - About 2-3 cups...Give or take.

  • 3 cans of beans - I used black, kidney, and chickpeas.

  • Optional - Freshly chopped cilantro!

What to do:

  1. Add some oil to a large cooking pot. Heat on medium heat.

  2. Add onions, celery, and garlic. Sautee for about 5 minutes.

  3. Season the veggies.

  4. Add the tomato paste and mix until totally blended w/ veggies.

  5. Add chicken broth - just enough to almost cover the veggies

  6. Drain & rinse beans.

  7. Add beans to the pot.

  8. Mix & add more chicken broth + some more seasonings!

  9. Bring to a boil.

  10. Turn down to a simmer and cover. Let it simmer for about 20 minutes. Keep checking on it and stir occasionally.

  11. Add chopped cilantro and mix it in.

  12. Serve! I added even more cilantro because I love it and it's so good for us! You could top w/ some shredded cheese!


Enjoy!
