There’s nothing like the aroma of a pot of hearty, earthy chili simmering on the stove on a cool autumn day. This vegan cauliflower black bean chili is a healthy and just-as-hearty rendition of traditional chili, made with cauliflower, sweet bell peppers, tomatoes, and protein-packed black beans, seasoned with earthy cumin, cayenne, chili powder.
My family loves a nice, hearty bowl of chili, usually accompanied by freshly sliced avocado, a dollop of Greek yogurt and garnished with fresh parsley. I love making this one-pot meal since it requires little effort to prepare and I can make enough for leftovers, plus ready-to-serve freezer meals for busy weeknights. This recipe is a winner in my home-for me, since I follow a predominantly vegan diet, and for my husband and kids who love chili. This vegan cauliflower black bean chili appeases the family with its earthy flavours, chunky texture, and delicious flavour, and also allows for me to enjoy a meatless meal without having to prepare a separate meal for myself!
Serve this delicious, wholesome vegan chili to the family on meatless Mondays or any day of the week, for that matter! It’s delicious served as is, but adding a dollop of Greek yogurt (for non-vegans), creamy avocado, and parsley adds freshness and another depth of flavour to this one-pot wonder.
