This recipe is quickly rising to the top as one of my favorite things to make for my vegetarian and vegan friends when they are having a difficult week or just need some help with meal time. It couldn't be easier to make and I find there are a million ways to eat it. I purposefully make this thick so the resulting dish isn't soup like because I think it makes things much more versatile. Add broth when you want a traditional chili but since it is nice and thick you can also make tacos, burritos, stuffed potatoes, and all sorts of other fun combinations. If a traditional chili is what you are after, I recommend adding extra vegetable broth from the beginning so you can get the consistency you want.
