Easy Vegan Chilli Recipe With Simple Ingredients

Vegan Bean Chilli Recipe - Easy to Make Healthy Vegan Recipe - budget Friendly Vegan Recipes -
Here is the ultimate vegan chili recipe with a chocolaty twist (literally). It’s simple, requiring just a few basic ingredients, and comes together in less than 1 hour.

For this recipe, I have only added kidney beans, which are especially high in iron and vitamin B1, but you can also add red lentils, black beans or even quinoa. This chili has a thick stew-like texture and uses only tomatoes, ginger, peppers, green chili and celery among the vegetables. You can skip celery if you don't have and add pumpkin or play around with vegetables you have in your kitchen. However, tomatoes is a mandatory as its the base of the recipe.

This recipe is really simple to make, needs no super chef skills. While it does take some time to cook, if you really want all the flavors to come together. I cooked it for about an hour, but if you are short of time, cut down on cooking time. Also, I like to use all fresh ingredients and I don't use any packaged food, so right from the tomatoes to the beans, everything was freshly prepared at home. no canned beans or tomatoes. However, you can swap as per your convenience. A lot of people like to add tomato paste to this recipe, and if you have some in your kitchen, feel free to add about a tablespoon. I haven't added to this one though.

Oh yes, I wasn't kidding earlier when I mentioned "chocolate". I added 92% dark chocolate to this recipe to give it a nice color and flavor. The dark chocolate adds intensity and an interesting flavor, and no it doesn't taste anything like chocolate. At first, even I was skeptic while adding it. However I was presently surprised with the result. The dark chocolate made a world of difference and I highly recommend you try it.

Make sure you use pure intense dark chocolate. I used the Vivani 92% dark chocolate that's sweetened with coconut sugar, so its healthy and I didn't need to add extra maple syrup to it.
