Hearty Vegan Chili

Since eating less meat, I’ve actually become a massive fan of chili. Something about it on those stormy spring days, warms my heart and fills my belly. It’s just SO good! I made this one alll on my own and felt the need to share this scrumptious recipe 🙂

Vegan Hearty Chili


  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 1 can pinto beans
  • 1 can diced tomato
  • 2-4 tablespoons vegetable broth
  • 1 package fake meat (I used the Mexican flavoring one)
  • 1 zucchini (sounds weird but tastes awesome!)
  • 1/2 cup black beans (can also use a can, but I had some leftovers I wanted to use up!)
  • 2-4 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika


Sautée the onion in a little vegetable broth in a large pot until half translucent (not precise so sorry for the weird direction :P). Add the fake meat until browned, add all the beans, spices, zucchini and tomatoes. Let simmer on low for as long as you’ve got (about 30-45 minutes is probably good, the longer it simmers the more enhanced the flavors). Remember to stir intermittently to not burn the chili to the bottom of the pot! Serve and enjoy the warm-y goodness.
