Healthy Vegan Chili ★★★★1 review

Hearty and Healthy Vegan Chili. This one-pot vegan chili is super cozy and packed with nourishing ingredients. Such a savory and comforting meal that tastes delicious as leftovers.


  • 1 Tbsp neutral oil, I used olive oil
  • 1 large white onion, chopped finely
  • 1 cup mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp dried oregano
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cups vegetable broth or filtered water
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (15 oz) pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed


  1. Heat a large pot with oil on medium heat. Once hot, add the chopped onion, carrots, salt and cook for 4-5 minutes.
  2. Add the mushrooms, garlic powder, dried oregano, chili powder, cumin, and cook for an additional 2 minutes while stirring constantly.
  3. Add the vegetable broth, black beans, pinto beans, chickpeas, and diced tomatoes with its juices. Mix and bring mixture to a simmer. Once simmering, turn heat down to low-medium and cook for 30 minutes stirring occasionally.
  4. Taste soup and add additional seasoning (salt, garlic powder, or chili powder) if needed.
  5. Divide into soup bowls and serve.
  6. Leftovers can be kept in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 3 days.

2017 is when I officially went vegan, cutting out all dairy products. It all began when my husband and I started watching vegan documentaries that informed us on what kinds of things were in our foods. See all recipes by Marissa

    This isn’t bad! I found that it needed more liquid. So, I used a whole 32oz box of veggie broth. I also only put 1 1/2 teaspoons of chili powder. 2T was just too much. I added some tempeh crumbled in to give it that ground beef texture, and also a handful of frozen corn.

      Thanks for sharing your adjustments to the recipe Anne. That’s a good idea to add in crumbled tempeh for the ground beef texture.
