Fergie’s So Cal Vegan Chili

Scrumptious! (Photo by Jeanette Ferguson)

Living in Southern California I realize how truly lucky we are to live in a place where there is such a vast variety of vegetables within reach. This chili is inspired by just that!

1 Can Garbanzo Beans, Drained
1 Can Cannellini Beans, Drained
3 Vegan Gardein “Chicken” Patties, Chopped
1/2 Onion, Diced
1/2 Red Bell Pepper, Diced
1 Cup Sweet Corn
3 Garlic Cloves, Minced
2 Tablespoons Cilantro, Finely Chopped
2 Teaspoons Poultry Seasoning
1 Teaspoon Paprika
1/2 Teaspoon Cumin
1/2 Teaspoon Oregano
1/2 Teaspoon Chili Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper, Optional for extra heat
1 1/2 Cups Veggie Broth
4 Tablespoons Olive Oil for cooking
Salt and Pepper to taste (I don’t add any… I think it tastes fine without)
