Vegetarian Bean Chili

Vegetarian Bean Chili

1 can Mixed Beans (chickpeas, kidney beans, etc)
1/2 can Black Beans
1/2 can corn (or frozen)
1 can Tomatoes
1 Onion (white or yellow)
1 Red Pepper
2-3 Celery Stalks
2 Cloves Garlic
2 teaspoon cayenne/chili pepper (1 teaspoon if you want it less hot)
1 + 1/2 tablespoon cumin
1 + 1/2 tablespoon coriander
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 veggie cube


1. Crush garlic, and dice 1 onion, 1 red pepper and a couple celery stalks.
2. Toss these elements into a big pot with some margarine in the bottom. Add a little salt if you want, helps release the water inside the vegetables.
3. Let it cook for 5 minutes.
4. Put in 1 can of diced tomatoes.
5. Add spices. 1 veggie cube, 1-2 teaspoon of chili pepper (don't do too much if you don't like things hot), 1 + 1/2 tablespoon of cumin, 1 + 1/2 tablespoon of coriander, 1 tablespoon brown sugar (I like things that are spicey and sweet, you can leave this out if you wish), dash of pepper
6. Let it simmer for 15-20 minutes.
7. Add in 1 can of mixed beans, 1/2 can of black beans (if they aren't in your mixed beans), and 1/2 can of corn.
8. Simmer for 20 more minutes.
9. I recommend letting it sit/simmer off the heat for a bit with the lid on. This will give the flavours a chance to blend and mingle, and get all happy.
10. Top with shredded cheese and green onion if you wish.
11. Serve with blue corn tortilla chips... and sour cream! My favourite!
