How To Make vegan chili

  • 1
    Place EVOO in a large skillet on medium heat. Add onion, peppers, garlic and a pinch of salt. Cook until very soft – about 10 minutes.
  • 2
    In a 6 quart pot, add all of the ingredients, including the onion mixture. Set on high and cover. Once it starts to boil, reduce heat to medium low and let simmer for 1.5 to 2 hours, stirring every 20-30 minutes. Taste to see if it needs salt or pepper and/or more water if it is too thick.

    You can also use a crock pot using the same method, except place on high until ready to serve. (about 4-6 hours)
