Vegetarian Chili

Rating: 3.5 stars 583
A variety of vegetables, a rich tomato base, and just the right amount of spice make this vegetarian chili a satisfying option in only 35 minutes. 

Weeknight Vegetarian Chili

Weeknight comfort foods like this one-pan quick chili are a great entryway into eating a more plant-based diet. Switching from a pot to a skillet slashed the cooking time in half for this recipe, and the wider pan surface lets spices and aromatics meld quickly for deep complexity.

Easy Beef Chili

No beans in this hearty ground beef-based chili! The meat is cooked with aromatics, then amped up with fire-roasted tomatoes, chili powder, and cocoa.

Vegan Sweet Potato Chili

Toasted ancho chiles add smoky, earthy flavor to this meatless chili that teams vitamin-rich sweet potatoes with protein-packed black beans.

Vegetarian White Chili

A Parmesan rind is the secret ingredient in this hearty white-bean chili—it adds tremendous richness and depth of flavor. If you don't have one, substitute the water in the recipe for homemade or store-bought low-sodium vegetable broth.

Black-Bean and Sweet-Potato Stew

This satisfying vegetarian stew is ready in about an hour—and more than half that time is hands-off. Opting for canned beans instead of dried put this recipe on the fast-track, and velvety, earthy sweet potatoes, nutty quinoa, and smoky chipotle peppers provided complexity and depth without the need for an all-day simmer.

Easy Chile Verde

If you order a bowl of authentic Mexican chile verde in the Southwest, you'll find hunks of juicy, tender pork shoulder that have been braised for hours in a tart tomatillo-chile sauce. While the original is worthy of a special weekend project, we wanted a recipe that we could make on any lazy Sunday and still be delicious. By using storebought ingredients that bring maximum flavor with the minimal amount of fuss, we created a hearty and warming chile verde that is practically hands-off. In a rush? Try the pressure-cooker version of this recipe, instead.

Vegetarian Three-Bean Chili

This chili is also delicious served over white or brown rice or with warmed tortillas on the side.
