Heat oil in medium saucepot over medium-high heat. The soy chorizo packs some PUNCH, you guys. I wanted a meat-free chorizo with textural contrast up the wazoo, and a chorizo that changes texture as you cook it just like its meat-based counterpart. I wanted a chorizo that is tangy, rich, and complex.
Soy Chorizo Chili (Vegetarian) step by step
- Combine all ingredients in your cooking pot of choice (see below) and stir to mix..
- If you're cooking this in a slow cooker, cook it on high for 4-5 hours or on low for 6-7 hours..
- If you're cooking this on a stovetop, let it simmer for 2 hours (stir it occasionally)..
- If you're prepping this ahead of time, mix it all in a large bowl and then package it in single servings and put it into the freezer; then you can take it out and cook it one serving at a time (which is good for those smaller Instant Pots, haha)..
In short, I wanted nothing less than the best darned. Make the beans first, probably soak them overnight or do the quick soak method, and then let them cook with the onion, garlic, and peppers. Great recipe for Soy Chorizo Chili (Vegetarian). This can be easily made on stovetop or in a slow cooker. It can also be made in an Instant Pot if you have one that's large enough. (My Instant Pot is one of the smaller ones, so I don't know what settings to use for this, sorry!) This recipe for Vegan Chili is just the ticket.
