Seriously, isn’t this bowl adorable? The chili is pretty wonderful too…

Easy Vegan Chilli

1 tbsp oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 bell peppers, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1/2 zucchini, chopped
2 tbsp cumin
3 tbsp chili powder
pinch salt
pinch cayenne
2 cans of beans – your choice (I used chickpeas & mixed beans)
1 can diced tomatoes with juice
2 tsp oregano
1 c. corn (thawed if frozen)
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tbsp agave
juice of 1 lime

In a large pot, heat up the oil.

Add garlic, peppers, onion, carrot and zucchini and sauté until veggies are soft and smelling delicious (about 4-5 mins)

Add cumin, chili powder and salt, turn down heat and cook for about 10 minutes.

Add remaining ingredients and mix everything together. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes.

Serves 6

It was good when I first made the recipe 2 years ago, but the owls took it to a new level. I think this is the new coveted bowl in our house – I know it certainly makes me smile a lot!

While I haven't tried the chili, I must say that since the owl bowl entered the kitchen, the cutsie factor went so high our cutsiemeter broke.
