Vegetarian Chili Bean

Updated: May 8, 2020

A perfect dish to make for a Meatless Monday or perhaps a rainy day for some comfort loving care.

This vegetarian chili bean dish would not disappoint you!

Cooking Time: 20-30 minutes


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 carrot, halved lengthwise and sliced

  • 1 red, green or yellow pepper, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon each chili powder, ground cumin, dried oregano

  • 3 cups cooked red, black or kidney beans

  • 1 cup spring water or vegetable stock

  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt


1. Heat the oil in a large heavy pan. Add onion and garlic and saute until the onion starts to brown.

2. Add the rest of the vegetables, chili powder, cumin and oregano. Saute for 5 minutes.

3. Slowly add the rest of the ingredients. Cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes.

4. Adjust the seasonings and serve.

Variations: Add other vegetables like celery, zucchini or squash. Skip the chili powder and use ginger instead to create a different taste. Add fresh or frozen corn and you have a grain-bean combination in one pot.

Add cooked quinoa like I did here for a tasty quinoa and bean dish.

Top it up with avocado, jalapeno and sour cream
