Vegan Chili Recipe
Hello Spice Family!
I hope everyone is having a great week. A cold front has it us here in La Selva Beach so we thought this chili recipe using our Seasoning Salt would warm everyone up! It is vegan based but feel free to add any chicken or something similar to it. This makes for a great side dish or even the main course. Give the recipe a try and share it with your family!
Thank you to everyone for the Spice Blend Set orders. We are still running the current promo that includes a free Himalayan salt pouch with every Spice Blend Set order. Grab it while we still have it up!
Soup / Vegan
1 onion diced
1 tbsp garlic minced
½ red bell pepper diced
½ yellow bell pepper diced
1 can kidney beans/ black beans
1 can pinto beans
¾ cup red lentils
2 cans fire roasted tomatoes crushed or diced
1 1/2 tbsp tomato paste
1 bay leaf
1 1/2 tbsp La Selva Beach Spice Seasoning Salt
1 tsp ground cumin powder
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne or any chilly powder of your choice
2 1/2 cups vegetable stock
2 tbsp olive oil/ avocado oil
Juice from 1 lime
Tortilla chips, chopped cilantro, avocado, vegan sour cream and vegan cheese for topping (optional)
Heat a heavy bottom pan and add the oil.
When the oil becomes hot, add the diced onions, minced garlic, bayleaf and saute for 3 to 4 minutes.
Now add the diced bell peppers and cook for another 3 minutes.
Now add the seasonings (paprika, cumin, cayenne, seasoning mix) and give it a mix. Cook for a minute making sure the spices don’t burn.
Add the canned tomatoes, tomato paste, canned beans (drained beans), vegetable stock, red lentils and give everything a mix. You can add more vegetable stock as needed while cooking to get the chili to the consistency you desire.
Cook everything for 20 to 25 minutes or until the red lentils become soft.
Now take an immersion blender and blend some of the chili (about 11/2 cups of chili). This helps thicken up the chili.
Add it back to the pot and let everything simmer together for further 5 minutes.
Serve hot topped with fresh lime juice, sour cream, tortilla strips or other toppings as desired.
