Vegetarian Three-Bean Chili

Serves 8
Time 1 hr 5 min
Kidney, black and navy beans make this chili a hearty version of the classic, full of vegetables, savory spices and fresh cilantro, too. Serve with a sprinkling of regular or dairy-free shredded cheese over the top, if you like.
Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 2 celery ribs chopped
  • 3 carrots chopped
  • 1 medium red or green bell pepper chopped
  • 6 medium white button mushrooms chopped
  • 2 jalapeño peppers seeded and finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup uncooked bulgur wheat
  • 1/2 cup cooked kidney beans drained
  • 1/2 cup cooked black beans drained
  • 1/2 cup cooked navy beans drained
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium tamari

Method

Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onions, celery, carrots, bell pepper, fresh mushrooms and jalapeños and the vegetables begin to soften, about for 3 minutes. Add garlic, chili powder, oregano and cumin and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add tomato paste and cook until the paste darkens in color, about 2 mintues. Add tomatoes, bulgur, beans and 1 to 2 cups water (enough to just cover ingredients). Simmer for 45 minutes, or until bulgur is tender. Stir in tamari and cilantro and serve.
