Bean based chili with oatmeal tastes like beef!

Recipe Ingredients for Heart Warming Vegetarian Chili

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cup chopped yellow onion (one large yellow onion)
1/2 cup diced carrots (two small carrots)
1 teaspoon of salt, or to taste
28 ounces diced tomatoes
31 ounces dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups oatmeal
7 ounces water

Recipe Directions for Heart Warming Vegetarian Chili

  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven or stock pot

  2. Cook onions and carrots until onions are translucent but not brown, about 3 to 5 minutes.

  3. Season with salt. Add tomatoes to the pot, then the rinsed beans.

  4. Add cocoa and chili powder, still until the powders are completely incorporated into the mixture.

  5. Add the oatmeal and about half the water. Cook for about 5 minutes and add water as necessary. You want a thick consistency.

  6. Cook for about 5 to 10 minutes more, until oatmeal breaks down (it will actually start to look a little like ground beef).

  7. Serve in a bowl with some of the shredded jack or cheddar cheese on top.
