Vegan White Bean Chili


This situation is vegan. And filling. And warm and awesome.

Vegan Chili with Northern White Beans

Don’t think that by me bringing you a vegan, healthy(ish) recipe is me saying that the party is over…because it’s not. You still have New Year’s to rock your way through! This year I’m being an old person and probably staying home and cooking dinner with my dude. BUT in years past I have partied like a crazy person, vommed in a many cab, and even celebrated with the flu in bed. My New Years’ experiences’ have been vast!

Back to chili…

This recipe is good for when you want something on the lighter side of filling, aren’t in the mood for, as my vegan mother calls it, “animal flesh,” and/or simply want something inexpensive and easy to make.

For the full recipe, go over to Etsy.

Oh and in case you didn’t know, I’m a contributor on Etsy, making a few recipes for them a month. In case you missed it, here are some of the other that have been posted: Clam Linguine in a Tarragon Cream Sauce (I might be addicted to tarragon); Spiced Apple Latkes with Cardamom Cream (please make this!); and Stuffing Muffins (no longer applicable but delicious nonetheless).

    I think the only thing scary about this recipe is the word “vegan” other than that it sounds fabulous! I make a similar one and it’s super flavorful! Yum!

      I’m not a huge fan of vegan food with fake cheese and fake meats, but the only thing really with this chili is that it has no meat and uses veggie stock. No bigs!

    I didn’t realize that Etsy featured recipes! That’s awesome you get to do that. The recipe looks great, I was thinking of making some soup this evening for dinner. This would be great with a big piece of buttered & garlic bread.

    I’ve found it’s actually, like, really easy to make vegan chili. Almost all of my mom’s old chili recipes are vegan if you take out the ground meat. This sounds delish…I love that there’s a charred pepper in it!

      Yeah totally. I kind of like vegan chili more than chili with a bunch of meat. (Don’t tell anyone!)

    This looks perfect for the cold night we’re having here in Texas tonight! Definitely will be bookmarking this recipe for the coming weeks.

    Haha I’ve had many New Years experiences like the ones you mentioned, but this year looks like it’s going to be a ‘in bed with the flu’ “celebration”! Will be making this in the New Year – nice and healthy!

    Vegan chili is the best. I always make a giant batch to have around for the week and freeze half of it for later.

    I must confess that I love your blog! Your photos are stunning. This chili looks divine on a cold wintery Idaho day like today. Can’t wait to try it.

    Vegetarian chili is a great vegan meal by itself, or with salad and cornbread . Good with sour cream or parmesan cheese – non-dairy or dairy. You can also use black beans in this recipe, or a mixture of red chili beans & black beans, as pictured.
