Easy Vegan Black Bean Chili

Vegan Black Bean Chili With Cornbread and Green Salad

This delicious recipe for a vegan Black Bean Chili is from the NYC Health + Hospitals Plant-based Lifestyle Medicine Program. The ingredients are simple:

  • 2 cans of organic black beans

  • garlic cloves

  • white onion

  • green bell pepper

  • tomato sauce

  • crushed tomatoes

  • chili powder

  • dried oregano

  • ground cumin

  • cayenne pepper (omit if you don't like spicy heat)

Here is the recipe.

Pot of Black Bean Chili

This was the first time I made a vegan chili using oregano in it, and I gotta say I love how the oregano helps balance out the cumin. I have a complex relationship with cumin so the oregano was a wonderful welcome to the flavor profile.

Meal Idea

Top chili with chopped green onions, cilantro, and vegan sour cream, I used Tofutti.

Add a chopped organic kale, arugula and carrot salad with a blush wine vinaigrette, and a piece of vegan cornbread.

The cornbread I made is from the Trader Joe's cornbread mix. To make the cornbread vegan, for the egg use one snack size pack of applesauce (or 4 tablespoons), and a neutral flavor plant-based milk like oat or soy.
