My friend Erin Cerwinski brought this to a potluck once and immediately we all demanded the recipe. It is a remarkably tasty vegan chili. I doubled the black beans and left out cilantro.

from http://recipesandme.com/recipes/vegetarian-quinoa-chili/ 



2 cups cooked quinoa

1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 large yellow onion, diced (1 3/4 cup)

4 cloves garlic, minced

2 (14.5 oz) cans diced tomatoes

1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce

1 1/2 – 2 cups water (or chicken broth if not making vegetarian)

1 (7 oz) can diced green chiles

2 1/2 Tbsp chili powder

2 tsp ground cumin

2 tsp cocoa powder

1 1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp granulated sugar

1/2 tsp ground coriander

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste (optional)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

2 (15 oz) cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed (I used one dark red, one light red)

1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed

1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen corn

1/2 cup cilantro, chopped

Juice of 1 lime



    Heat olive oil in a large enameled cast iron pot over medium-high heat.

    Once oil is hot add onion and saute until tender, about 4 minutes, adding in garlic during last 30 seconds of sauteing.

    Add in diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, cooked quinoa, water (start with 1 1/2 cups then add more later if desired), green chiles, chili powder, cumin, cocoa, paprika, sugar, coriander, cayenne pepper and season with salt and pepper to taste.

    Bring mixture just to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer, cover pot and allow to simmer 30 minutes.

    Add in all beans, corn, cilantro and lime and cook until heated through.

    Serve warm with optional toppings and sides (cheddar, sour cream, diced avocados, saltine crackers or tortilla chips).
