With the winter months soon to arrive, I have been testing out new chili recipes. The city where I live does an annual Chili Walk in which different art shops downtown offer their homemade chilis and cinnamon rolls. This allows the shops to gain attention and help out local businesses. Last year, I came across a white chili that I fell in love with and decided I would try to find something similar. This year my goal is to make a plant based version of this chili, and I think I have possibly done that.
Scouring the internet I came across a recipe for a Vegetarian White Chili granted it was completely vegan. Being allergic to the oil from jalapeños, I decided to take the recipe and alter it a bit to make it my own. With that being said; however, you will be able to find the link to the original recipe at the bottom of the page. Enough of my ramblings though! Let’s move on to the good stuff! Happy Sunday Everyone!
Hardy Vegan White Chili
2 cups. Vegetable broth
(4) cloves garlic (peeled and minced)
(2) 15 oz. White beans, drained
8 oz. Vegan cream cheese (Daiya brand)
White Chili Seasoning (I used 1/4 tsp ground cloves, 1tsp. Cayenne pepper, 1 tbsp. Garlic powder, 1 tbsp. Onion powder, 1 tbsp. Paprika, 2 tsp. Agave Nectar)
Salt & Pepper to taste
1/2 cup. Red Bell Pepper
1/2 cup. Green Bell Pepper
3/4 cup. Chopped Onion
1/2 cup. Mushrooms (add more if you desire)
1 cup. Corn (I used canned).
Note: For those wanting to add jalapeños, the original recipe calls for (1) 7oz can. jalapeño slices (drained)
Step One: First heat a bit of oil – or vegetable broth for doing this oil-free – in a casserole.
Step Two: Fry the garlic and the optional onions and bell for around 5 minutes.
Step Three: Combine all ingredients, including jalapeños (if desired) and cook on medium heat for 15 minutes.
Step Four: Season with salt and pepper as wanted, and dish out to plates. Enjoy!
