Save time and effort during the week with this Easy Vegetarian Chili. With a ton of plant-based protein & tasty veggies, it’s a weeknight favourite!
This time of year seems to be incredibly busy for everyone. Now that we’re back into the swing of things and starting to get accustomed to the new year, life is full speed ahead. With limited time in our schedules, it’s important to be able to prioritize our time doing things that bring you joy. As much as I love cooking and recipe testing, for some, it may not bring them much excitement. So if your list of joyful activities doesn’t include spending time in the kitchen making dinner, that’s where this Easy Vegetarian Chili comes in. Not only does it take minimal preparation but it also cooks really quickly. That means it will be on the table in less than 40 minutes! With all of that extra time available, you can spend more time doing things that mean the most to you.
The main ingredients for this Easy Vegetarian Chili are:
Pretty simple right?! If you prefer to make this a non-vegetarian chili, you can add some ground meat before adding the beans. Let it cook for 7-10 minutes and then continue on with the recipe. Alternatively, you can try out my Easy Turkey Chili recipe.
The combination of white kidney beans and black beans really amplifies the plant-based protein content of this chili. That means you will be feeling full and satisfied once you’ve polished off a bowl or two of this chili. If you aren’t a fan of kidney beans or black beans, you can use whatever beans or pulses you have on hand. Find some suggestions for substitutes in the recipe notes section.
This Easy Vegetarian Chili is SO easy to whip up. It also makes a big batch that you can keep in the fridge for leftovers throughout the week, serve at a dinner party, or freeze for those chilly lazy nights in! If keeping it in the fridge, it will stay good for 3-4 days. If storing in the fridge it will keep well for 4-6 months. Just be sure you’re using airtight containers!
