Garden Vegetable Chili
the best kosher chili recipe~easy too!
Cooking for The King's kosher chili recipe is an easy vegan/ vegetarian dish and a customer favorite from my catering days. It not only easy on your time but is economical, too, especially if you stretch it by serving it over rice or pasta. Makes a lot and freezes well.
Coffee, cocoa powder and touch of cinnamon give it a rich robust taste. So chock full of healthy vegetables (Queens in the kitchen will substitute our family's favorites), they'll never miss the meat!
