Vegan Slow Cooker Chili Recipe #SundaySupper

February 23, 2014

Vegan Slow Cooker Chili RecipeI’ve been playing with this recipe for a long time, it has become my tried and true chili recipe. It started off full of meat and full of other unnecessary ingredients so I’ve played with it for a  long time. I really wanted to make this vegan.

Vegan Slow Cooker Chili Recipe-3Some say beans don’t have a place in chili and some think they do. I like both “meat” and beans. A full bean chili is a bit too much for me and a full meat analog chili is too rich. As for meat substitutes there are many on the market. I LOVE Match Meats but it is pretty hard to get in California. Hey Match, get on that! I’ve used LightLife and Boca crumbles just fine. What’s really great is there is no “browning” the meat. Heck, you just dump it in the slow cooker.

Vegan Slow Cooker Chili Recipe-4The secret to this recipe? The refried beans. It makes a brilliant texture, especially since things don’t really reduce well in the slow cooker. The husband requests this chili and he’s a full on meat eater. It makes a great bowl of plain chili but also awesome chili dogs and chili baked potatoes. I also like the make the full amount of seasoning mix. It works well sprinkled on so many things. Really spices up some veggies or a baked potato. Handy to have in the pantry.

    I am so intrigued by a vegan chili! I might have to throw this in the slow cooker right now, but I don’t do meatless crumbles. I wonder what garbanzo beans would do for it?

    This chili is VEGAN??? What???!!! It looks so amazing, I can’t believe it! Call me impressed. And I love your idea of using refried beans in your chili. I bet that gives amazing texture. Despite being from Texas, the land of don’t-you-dare-put-beans-in-the-chili, I don’t mind an occasional bowl with beans. I know, I’m a heretic! Ha! I’m definitely trying the refried beans in there sometime. 🙂

      I’m pretty sure you can just add the refried beans with the normal meatstuff and nobody would know the difference! It just really helps keep things less watery in the slow cooker.
