Easy Vegan Chili

This is a very mild vegan chili, so some of you will want to "punch it up" with additional chili powder, hot peppers, cracked red pepper flakes, tabasco sauce, etc. We like it with a little fresh sliced avocado on top and a side of cornbread. I also cooked some macaroni noodles to add after the fact, because my crock pot wouldn't hold any more volume, but I'd like to try modifying this recipe next time by adding macaroni, potatoes, quinoa, or rice.

[GF] This recipe is naturally gluten-free as long as the seasonings you add are GF.




  1. Combine everything in the crock pot and mix well.
  2. Cook on low for about 4.5 hours until beans are soft and flavors are well-mixed.
  3. Add salt, pepper, and other seasoning to taste if you find that you want more kick.
