Meatless Black Bean Chili
I know this is a bit late considering that the challenge has ended. But I know a couple of vegans/vegetarians that might still benefit from this! So here it is my lovely culinary fanatics! Remember, it tastes better than it looks.
1 bag dried black beans (soak for at least 8-10 hours)
2 15oz cans tomato sauce
2 15oz cans filled with water
1 green bell pepper
1 medium onion, chopped fine
1 1/2 tbs chili powder
2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 head of celery, washed and chopped into bite size pieces
salt to taste
fresh ground pepper to taste
1. Sautee the olive oil, onions, peppers, and celery in a large pot on medium heat
2. Once onions become translucent, toss in the beans and stir a few times
3. Add in the rest of the ingredients and cook on medium low heat for 45 minutes or until beans are softer and the chili is thicker. Be sure to stir every so often so that the bottom doesn’t burn!
