Vegetarian Chili Recipe from Easy Healthy Recipes

This is a vegetarian chili recipe. It's one of our easy healthy recipes and produces a hearty homemade boca chili.

Vegetarian chili is excellent to serve to large groups of people at gatherings or parties. Everyone seems to like it. It can be made the day before, refrigerated, and then reheated.

In fact, it benefits from being prepared in advance because that allows its flavors to develop fully.

Serve with a green salad for a healthy meal. Everyone should have at least one green salad each day. Please use organic ingredients whenever possible.

(b) Meanwhile, combine onion, green pepper, red pepper, garlic, jalapeno pepper, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and water in the pot. Bring to a simmer. Stirring occasionally, simmer for approximately five minutes until the vegetables are soft and the water evaporates.
