Picture of Easy vegetarian chili
Chili is a classic winter recipe, it is very filling and warms you up on the coldest of days. However, preparing dishes with meat often creates mess, and if you are squeamish its not the easiest food to work with. Usually, chili contains ground beef, and this can cause a problem if you have vegetarian guests, don't like cooking with meat, etc. So, for vegetarians and squeamish meat-eaters alike, I present this quick, neat and easy winter recipe.

Step 1: Ingredients

Everytime I eat chili cheese nachos at the movies, I have to pick out the meat. I just like the flavor of the chili...the sauce. I wondered if vegetarian chili existed, because I would LOVE to make it one day! Now I know is does and this looks really good!

I have a very similar recipe to this the main difference being it uses cranberry juice instead of water and regular flour instead of corn flour. Plus I go a bit heavier on the garlic and chili powder. But it is essentially the same. When my sister makes it she uses the same basic recipe but with red wine in place of the water/cranberry juice. This recipe freezes well so normally when I make it I make a large batch in a really big pot and freeze it in Tupperware containers for quick meals.
