I have to be honest. Although I am a Texas girl, I am not the biggest chili fan. When I was younger, I loved chili dogs but as I’ve gotten older, I have found it difficult to enjoy eating chili because it is quickly followed by a bloated tired feeling that we all know as the itis. Since embarking on my health journey, I have created an easy, quick, and vegan chili recipe that I keep in my back pocket for days when I just need some comfort food. Think about it. When can you ever find a recipe that is all three: easy, quick AND vegan? Yeah, I can’t think of many others that fit the criteria.
Last year, I posted an IG story showing the tofu chili I make from time to time and received a DM asking for the recipe. Guys, I promise to get better at providing a recipe with my IG story so I don’t flaunt the delicious treats and leave you wanting without a recipe to enjoy yourselves.
I personally recommend eating this with some cornbread or unsalted crackers. For me, nothing beats a little carb in my dinner and I can’t think of a better pair than cornbread and chili.
I hope you all enjoy this recipe and enjoy a healthier version of chili featuring super firm tofu and whatever beans you have in the pantry. Really! You don’t have to be picky. I always put whichever beans I have on hand in the recipe and I don’t worry about the selection. I’ve never been led astray.
If you try this recipe, be sure to share it with me on instagram or via email. I love to see that we’re on this journey toward wholesome living together.
