Veggie Chili

It’s not really a secret that the only meat I eat is from the sea, but I am able to admit that I am always jealous of the beef chili Joe makes every week.  It makes the entire apartment smell wonderful and looks delicious.  Unfortunately, I cannot bring myself to eat it.

Thankfully, I don’t have to because Joe is a wonderful husband and made me a vegetarian version of his chili!  I can honestly say that this is the best bean chili I have ever eaten.  To make it even better, I’ve been serving it over brown rice – which is great touch!

I highly recommend giving this recipe a go, especially if you’re not sure what to do for a meatless Monday… or you’re looking for a way to warm up during this cold spell!


Veggie Chili


  • 1 can of cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can of kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cans crushed tomatoes
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cumin to taste
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • Chili powder to taste


1)  Add a little bit of olive oil in a pot.  Once it’s heated, throw in the diced onions, garlic, and pepper.  Cook until it’s fragrant and softened a bit.

2)  Add the cans of crushed tomato, followed by the beans, and the spices (I would recommend adding less first, because you can add more later).  Stir everything together.

3)  Allow the chili to come to a boil for five minutes, then lower the heat and simmer for at least an hour.  If you would like to add more spices, do so now.

4)  Enjoy!

    Sounds yummy. I’m a meat eater but I do love a good veggie chili. Try it over a baked potato sometime!

    • Kristen

      I’m definitely going to try that next time Joe makes this!

    We’re trying to do a meatless Monday or something soon, so I’ll add this to our list. I like the cannellini beans.. sort of a meaty substitute,

    Mmmm…. that does sound good! We try to eat meat in only one meal a day, or skip it totally one day a week. Pinning this for later. Thanks!

    I love, love, love chili! This looks yummy… but I don’t know that I could go without my meat. Maybe for a Meatless Monday… but otherwise, gotta have it.
