Recipe Vegan Chili sin Carne (Without Tofu)
The first recipe I post is the “Recipe Vegan Chili Sin Carne” which is one of my most favorite dishes. Actually, I was afraid that Chili con Carne would be one of the meals I would miss the most when going veggie. But I am happy to tell you that I don’t have to compromise and I found some very good alternatives which don’t make me miss Chili con Carne at all (Find out why I have decided to become a vegetarian). Now this vegan Chili con Carne is sometimes all it takes to make me happy 🙂 Fast done and also tasty as a leftover (also ideal for freezing).

Often thought of Mexican food it actually is an American dish which is now well known in many countries.
Serves: 4 Prep time: 15 min. Total time: 45 min.
- 250g pearl barley (rice or bulgur also work but pearl barley is my favorite)
- 1000ml tomato sauce
- 800ml water
- 1 can of red beans
- 1 can of corn
- 1 onion
- 1 – 2 red paprika (pepper)
- 1 chili (if you like, I just use chili powder)
- salt, cayenne pepper, paprika powder (sweet and hot)
- sugar (half teaspoon)
- vegetable broth (I only use it sometimes, about 1 teaspoon)
- if wanted: add some garlic
- Cook the pearl barley according to instruction.
- In the meantime cut the onions and the paprika.
- Add olive oil to a large pot and when the oil is hot put in the sliced onions and paprika. Fry the onion and paprika on medium heat and lightly cook until golden (you can add extra garlic which I normally don’t do)
- Add the tomato sauce, water, and the spices into the big pot and cook it for a few minutes.
- Add the cooked pearl barley, corn, and beans and cook it for few minutes until nicely combined.
- Add more water if needed (if you want to eat the Chili con Carne later you probably must add extra water).
- If it is too sour add a little bit of sugar
- Enjoy this vegan Chili sin Carne
As it is my first recipe I would appreciate any comment and look forward to your feedback. I know my food pictures don’t look very fancy (yet) and I need to learn taking better pictures of food, as I hardly do that 🙂 So, please try the recipe though the pics aren’t that inviting 🙂
