Vegan Chili – Clean Eating, Fast and Delicious!

I know what some of you might think… to eat clean you have to spend hours in the kitchen!

Totally not true!

Tonight I created a super simple yet clean, healthy and FAST dinner!

Let’s get cooking, shall we?!


Simple Vegan Chili 

  • 2 cans of organic beans – I used a can of white beans and a can of garbanzo
  • 1 six inch zucchini, cubed
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 10 large cherry tomatoes, halved and quartered (improvise here! I had larger cherry tomatoes and just guessed – I would say it was about a cup or more fresh tomatoes)
  • handful of sundried tomatoes
  • handful of chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup of water
  • a tablespoon of olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • chili seasoning – I used a half a packet of Trader Joes taco seasoning (no MSG) but you can use a combo of cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, etc.

Heat a soup pot on medium heat. Add olive oil. Once hot, add onion, zucchini, salt and pepper. Stir and let cook for about 5 minutes. Add everything at this point – tomatoes, beans, water, seasonings and cilantro. Bring to a boil, cover and let simmer for 15-20 minutes or so.

I boiled some fresh gluten free noodles and placed a few scoops of chili on them.

Dinner is served! Simple, healthy and oh so good!
