From My Kitchen: Vegetarian Chili

Well, guess who’s still out of work? That’s right me. This Covid crisis cannot end soon enough. On the bright side, I have been cooking up a storm. As soon as it gets cold, it’s chili time, and this time, I put my energy into a vegetarian version, just going the healthy way. Trust me, this is just as good as one with beef or turkey! This recipe is very easy, and also pretty fast to prepare. You will be perfectly equipped to deal with the frigid temperatures. Weather the storm, baby.

What you’ll need:

In a large pot, over medium heat, heat olive oil, then add onion, bell pepper and carrots. Sauté for 5 minutes. Add garlic and jalapeño and cook for another minute.

Add tomato paste and stir to coat the vegetables. Add all beans and stir to combine.

Add tomatoes and seasoning. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Serve hot with toppings, either by itself or with rice.

Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
