Hearty Vegetarian Chili

Happy Friday Morning! I don’t know about you but I am so ready for cooler weather. The other day I was going through one of my old recipe box and came across one of my favorite recipes that I used to cook. I’m so glad that I found it and plan on making some next week. The chili has a lot of flavor and is healthy also. So if you get a chance and want to try something different make this chili and you can’t go wrong. It’s very easy to make!

Ingredients needed:

3 tbs. olive oil                                                              1 pkg Morning Star Vegetables
2-3 large zucchini or summer squashes             1 cup Healthy Choice tomato sauce
2 medium onions, diced                                                   1 tsp. sugar
2 sweet red peppers, cubed                                         2 tbs. chili powder
2 large carrots, grated                                                    1 tsp. cumin
4 garlic cloves, minced                                                 1 tsp oregano
1 (28 oz.) can Italian tomatoes (low-sodium)     1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
drained and cut up
1 can kidney beans                                                    3 cups cooked brown rice

1. In large saucepan sauté squash and onions olive oil until tender.
Add peppers, carrots, and garlic and continue to sauté 5 minutes.
2. Add chopped tomatoes, kidney beans, vegetable crumbles, tomato
sauce, sugar, and spices. Simmer until cooked

I hope everyone has a great weekend and I’ll see ya’ll on Monday!
