One-Pot Spicy Chili [Vegan]
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 2 onions
- 2 carrots
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1 celery stalk with leaves
- 1 tablespoon double tomato concentrate
- 2 cups canned diced tomatoes
- 2 bell peppers
- 1 red chili
- 1/2 cup vegetable stock
- 1 cup red kidney beans
- 1 cup corn
- juice of half a lemon or lime
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- In a pot, heat a tablespoon of oil, then add finely diced onions, carrots, garlic and celery. Gently fry while stirring, until the vegetables turn softer.
- Move the vegetables to the sides of the pot, then add a tablespoon of tomato concentrate in the center and fry until it turns a darker shade. Add diced bell pepper and finely diced chili, a bay leaf and pour in canned diced tomatoes and vegetable stock. Season with salt, pepper and ground cumin and simmer on low heat for about 20 minutes, until the vegetables soften.
- Once the chili is almost ready, remove the bay leaf, then using a stick blender quickly blend the chili but only give it a couple of blends and let it remain chunky.
- Serve the chili with a cup of plain cooked rice and some avocado slices.
