“Beefy” Chili

1 Comment

Tonight I tried out a “beefy” vegetarian chili dish from Nava Atlas’ The Vegetarian 5-Ingredient Gourmet. Though I’m far from a chili expert (this may have been the first full bowl I’ve ever had), I ate the whole thing and loved it. It was quite hearty and had enough spice to it to make my nose itch.

The five ingredients? Organic pinto beans, organic black bean medium salsa, frozen corn kernels, Moringstar Grillers veggie crumbles, and cumin. I’ll see whether Ms. Atlas will give me permission to reprint the recipe on the blog, so you all can try it.

I’ll be cooking for myself for a three or four days this week, so I plan on trying out a new dish each night. Of course I’ll report back. :)

    I’m glad Ryan is using organic ingredients in his rendition of my recipes. I do the same. Though I put in a good word for organics at the beginning of the book, I don’t specify “organic” in the ingredients list s themselves. Since this book definitely appeals to those in a transition to more meatless meals, I don’t want to overwhelm those who are just getting their feet wet. First, I’d like to get people to add more veggies, soy, and other healthey foods to their daily meals; the discovery of organics usually follows suit. Good going, Ryan!
