Yummy Vegan Chili Recipe

This is my very tasty Vegan Chili recipe which is always enjoyed whenever I serve it. It is very healthy and it is vegan and gluten-free too.

For this recipe, I cook my beans instead of buying canned ones.  Learn how to cook your beans from scratch according to the recipe: How to Cook Beans.

I usually serve this chili with brown rice or millet.

  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms sliced, optional
  • 1 - 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp cumin ground
  • 1/2 tsp coriander ground
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 - 1 tsp cayenne pepper*
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 3 carrots thinly sliced
  • 3 cups cooked kidney beans and water
  • 2 - 4 tsp Braggs
  • 1 green pepper or 1 cup chopped kale sliced
  • 3 tomatoes chopped
  • 1 cup corn frozen works


  • Sauté onion, mushrooms, garlic till golden on medium heat.
  • Add cumin, coriander, and oregano and saute for a minute.
  • Add carrots, cooked kidney beans with 1 cup of the bean water, Braggs and green pepper.
  • Cook till vegetables are tender.
  • Add tomatoes, cayenne pepper, and paprika.
  • Cook on medium heat until thick like the consistency of gravy, adding more water if necessary.
  • Add corn and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Serve with a grain of your choice. I usually serve with brown rice or millet.


* Cayenne is easier on the digestive system then chili and there is lots of literature saying it is very good for one’s health. But you could use Chili powder or fresh chopped chilies. I actually make this without any pepper as that is my preference but when I put the recipe together I knew that the people I was making it for would have been very disappointed had there been no heat in the Chili! Use as much as you like.

Delightful Pumpkin Stew For One of Your Fall Meals It is fall, so it’s ‘Stew’ time and I think you’re going to love this ‘Vegan Pumpkin Stew’ recipe! Fall is when I start making lots of vegan stews because they are heartening, nourishing and so easy to make. I have to say that summer is my favourite season, but there is so much beauty at this time of the year. I love walking amongst the beautiful fall leaves.
