Quick Vegan Mixed Beans Chili

Kind of a simplified chili, here’s a hearty stew featuring beans and corn. If your beans are cooked, or you’re using canned, this comes together very quickly when you want a cool-weather dinner in a hurry. Serve with a simply prepared grain like quinoa, rice, or couscous and a big salad. Serves: 6

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 medium zucchini, diced
  • 15- to 16-ounce can red or pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 15- to 16-ounce can chickpeas or black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups cooked fresh or frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • 15- to 16-ounce can fire-roasted or Mexican-style
    stewed tomatoes, chopped, with liquid
  • 1 to 2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and minced,
    or one 4- to 7-ounce can mild green chilies
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons good-quality chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
