Vegetarian Chili Recipe

Here’s a classic Chili Recipe that is loaded with veggies. It’s quick and easy to make, and is wonderful garnished with cheese and sour cream and paired with cornbread (as well as a salad if you’re feeling extra healthy)!

I did add some ground turkey to my recipe, just so you know. If the meat was left out, I don’t think anyone would miss it. You can use the meat substitute as suggested in the recipe, but I really don’t think it’s totally necessary.

Sometimes I find chili to be too acidic for me, you can combat the acidity with an addition of some sugar, if you’d like. This is also why I like to top my chili with sour cream (or greek yogurt, if that’s what I have one hand). Something about the addition of the dairy really helps.

There’s something classic about chili and cornbread, isn’t there? It’s great comfort food, and is actually quite healthy in this case. What is your favorite recipe? I’ve had chili with cocoa in it once, that was pretty tasty too!
