If you are entertaining mixed palettes, this meal will satisfy all tastes. A from-scratch chili that uses many different vegetables as well as beans, lentils and tofu to provide that 'full' feeling that chili with meat offers. Add fresh parsley and basil to taste, if desired. I prefer to let the chili sit overnight in the refrigerator before serving.

This was some darn good chili for being meatless. Its not a fast meal so plan this for a lazy day or weekend. Pretty easy and straight forward to make. I only did changed a few things. I did not add any green beans, used real garlic instead of garlic powder, and after crumbling the tofu I browned it in a frying pan to give it a little more stiffness. Goooooood chili!!

I tweaked this recipe a bit to suit my taste (and time constraints), and it's awesome! I used a can of chili beans instead of soaking all those dry beans, left out the green beans, didn't bother to cook the tomatoes down, browned the tofu up a bit first, and only added water as needed as it cooked, which made it the perfect consistency.

I would call this Vegan Chili Soup. The flavour is great, but the only thing chunky about it was the tofu. Go with fresh garlic and a sprinkle of chili pepper flakes.
