I love chili, and being a Vegan Chef, I had to come up with a really good chili that would rival the best chilis out there. This one is hearty, meaty, spicy and has lots of protein to kick you into action. Gaurunteed crowd pleaser.


  • 2 tbsp Sunflower oil
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup onions, diced
  • 4-5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 jalapenos, diced
  • or 1 jalapeno, 1/2 poblano, 2 anaheim chilis, diced
  • 1 tbsp cumin seed
  • 2 tbsp red chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (more if you like it hot)
  • 1 lb tempeh, minced
  • Juice of 2 or 3 limes
  • 1 cup cooked black beans
  • 1 cup cooked red kidney beans
  • 4 cups Vegetable Stock
  • Chopped Cilantro for garnish
  • Lime wedges for garnish


  • In a sturdy stock pot, heat up the oil. Add the carrots and saute until soft. Add the peppers, onion, and garlic. Add a pinch of salt to the mirapoix. This will allow the sweet flavors of the vegetables to come out. Saute until almost soft, or the onions turn translucent.
  • Add the tempeh and stir. Add chili powder and cayenne. If necessary add a bit more oil to make the chili powder into a paste. De-glaze with lime juice. Add the beans, stir around some more. Add the vegetable stock.
  • Cover and cook on simmer for 2-3 hours. Even though the beans are already cooked, the flavor of the mirapoix and stock need to soak into the beans.
