Since the winter is upon us, its time we all start craving comfort foods. What better way to pass the long winter than with warm delicious food?! This week’s vegan recipe is the great winter warmer: chili! This recipe is easy and relatively quick compared to some chili recipes. Don’t be scared away by the long list of ingredients (most are veggies and spices)!  So take a break from the frigid weather and warm your body as well as your soul.

Prep Time: 10 Minutes   Cook Time: 30 Minutes   Serves: 6 People

1 3/4 Cups Canned Kidney Beans
3/4 Cup Canned Black Beans
1 Can Cooked Corn
1 14oz Can of Tomatoes
1 6oz Can of Tomato Paste
3 Tbls Soy Sauce
2 Tbls Olive Oil
1 Onion, Chopped

1 Green Bell Pepper Chopped
1 Zucchini, Chopped
2 tsps C
hili Powder,
1 tsp Cumin
1/2 tsp Coriander
1/2 tsp Oregano
1/4 tsp Thyme
Cayenne Pepper to taste

First chop the onion, green pepper, and zucchini and cook the veggies in olive oil in a skillet. Saute the veggies until soft or the onions turn translucent.  In a large pot add the tomato paste, tomatoes, corn, kidney beans, and black beans. Keep on medium and stir in the sauteed veggies, soy sauce, and all spices. Let the mixture simmer, stirring occasionally for 25 minutes. Ready to serve immediately. A great way to top it off is with a dollop of Tofutti Vegan Sour Supreme and some shredded Follow Your Heart Cheddar Cheese.  Also, its great idea to serve with some delicious vegan cornbread or over tortilla chips.


This week’s vegan recipe is another great party dish or backyard cookout item: Spinach Dip. This item is not often offered to vegans and you will surprise any guest vegan or non vegan with its authentic American taste!

Vegan Spinach Dip

Prep Time: 15-20 Minutes Cool Time: 2 Hours

1 Container of Sour Cream Substitute (we suggest Tofutti Sour Supreme or Follow Your Heart Vegan Gourmet)

1 Cup of Mayonnaise Substitute (we suggest Follow Your Heart Vegenaise)

1 Can of drained Water Chestnuts

1 Package of Thawed Frozen Spinach or 1 Bag of Fresh Spinach Chopped and Steamed

3 Green Onions Finely Chopped

A Clove of Garlic Finely Chopped

1/2 a Cube of Vegan Bullion Flavoring

Salt and Pepper to Taste

A Couple Finely Chopped Carrots (optional)

1 Large Sourdough Round

In a large bowl mix all wet ingredients and the bullion flavoring. Next add all the vegetables and spices and mix! Let the mixture cool for up to 2 hours before serving. Scoop out the sourdough round into a bread bowl. Take the extra bread and cut into cubes. When ready to serve, scoop the dip into the bowl and serve!

If you don’t want to use the bread, we suggest serving crackers or other veggies to dip! Another great idea is to cut large chunks of beets, cucumbers, and peppers and place small amounts of dip on each veggie! This makes a great appetizer for any meal or party!
