|Cashew chili is easy, delicious, filling, and vegan. What more can you ask for?|
|Directions||Heat the oil over medium heat; add celery, onions, and bell pepper; and sauté until tender.
Add tomatoes, and beans, their liquids, and all the spices. Cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes, until you’re happy with the amount of liquid. Remove bay leaf and stir in 1 T vinegar.
Taste and adjust seasonings, top with cashews, and serve.
|Notes||I like chunky chili with mostly kidney beans and cashews. For a soupier chili, use the smaller amounts of beans and nuts.
Also try long-simmered vegetarian chili.
