👩🏻‍🍳EASY Plant Life Chili
This is a recipe for a 5 quart pot, enough for at least 6/8 big portions
🌶Spice Mix
2 tbsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1.5 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp dry basil
🌶 Marinade
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp maple syrup
🌶Chili
2 cups chopped white onion
6 cups chopped portobello mushrooms
2 tsp black mustard seeds
2 tbsp coconut oil
6 cloves garlic , finely chopped
1 cup chopped MILD red chilis or red bell peppers
6 cups chopped tomatoes (keep 2 cups chopped and purée 4 cups in a blender)
4 cups dry kidney beans, soaked overnight in cold water
4 cups vegetable broth
– make your spice mix first by blending all ingredients together
– in a mixing bowl, add the spice mix to the chopped raw mushrooms and mix to completely coat. The longer they sit like this the better
– make your marinade by whisking all ingredients together, then pour over the (already spiced) mushrooms and toss to coat. Let those marinate while you start cooking your onions
– in your pot on medium/low heat add coconut oil and mustard seeds. Heat the oil until they start to pop
– add your onions and sauté until translucent (aprox 10 mins, stirring often)
– add your garlic and red chili’s and sauté together until fragrant (another 5 mins)
– now add the bowl of mushrooms to the pot including all the spices & marinade and turn the heat up. Stir frequently until most of the liquid is gone (10ish mins)
– next add chopped & puréed tomatoes
– finally add soaked beans and vegetable broth
– bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 1-2 hours or until beans are soft
– The I use a potato masher to smoosh some of the beans & stir until I like the consistency
– I garnish with a sprinkle of nutritional yeast and some moringa or cilantro leaves! Also goes great with tortilla chips or cornbread 😍
