Hay Justin, what were those vegan resources I promised you? I remember us talking about it but I couldn't remember if it was actual recipes, or just acceptable substitutions for things, or vegan-friendly products that I buy and use, or vegan cooking sites, or what.

I suppose I could just post everything I have on vegan food and cooking, but man that would take a while and I'm lazy.

Justin said...

You read comments from old posts. That makes you my closest friend.

You had mentioned a delicious black bean something. Maybe chili?

And maybe just like one vegan cooking site that comes recommended.

Easy enough!

Christina's Bangin' Vegan Chili

1 TBL olive or safflower oil
1/2 medium onion, chopped
2 bay leaves
1 TSP cumin
2 TBL dried oregano
1 TSP salt (optional)
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 bell peppers, chopped
5 cloves garlic, chopped
4 TBL salsa verde or 4 diced green chilies
12 oz. meat substitute of your choice (I like Gimme Lean soysage)
2 medium cans diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can tomato paste
1/8 cup chili powder with another 1/8 cup mix of paprika, cayenne, sage, red pepper flakes (this part is a little esoteric, I just wing it more often than not)
1 TBL black pepper
1 can kidney beans, drained
1 can garbanzo beans, drained
1 can black beans, undrained
OPTIONAL: 1 can corn, drained

Assemble ingredients. In a big-ass saucepot on medium heat (biggest you have, this makes a TON of chili), heat the oil and sautee onions, bay, cumin, and oregano until onions are just about cooked. Add in the celery, peppers, verde/chilies, garlic and sautee that for a bit. Add in the soymeat stuff and make sure it's browned. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 5 mins. Add in the tomatoes, chili powder mix, and black pepper. Stir in the beans. Bring the entire shebang to a boil and reduce the heat to low. Simmer 45 minutes. Turn off the heat, load up a bowl and eat it. Yum! Makes a ton of chili and lots of great leftovers.

Vegan sites I recommend:


Not Vegan but still a very good resource for nutrition:

OK...but from what? Like are you about to drown or something? Because I fully believe that even if you were about to drown, you would write a post that would go down in post-erity in a death is an art sort of way...and then drown...(tis a far better thing I do now than I have ever done)...if I misquoted Dickens it's only cos I never read the Tail of Two Cities.

Eating vegan won't save you from the fire of hell. Repent!

By the way, can I substitue pinto beans for all the others. That's just the way I roll.

Christina said...

Sure! I prefer bean medley action, but a pure pinto chili is good too.

Justin said...

Thanks for the recipie!

The real shame is that Celery doesn't come canned.


P.S. I wish I would have read about your cycle before I bought my recumbent bike.

Justin said...

Alex K,
I was borrowing from Dave Matthews. Or so I thought. Since you are far ahead of me in all other areas (Computers, Cycling) I am tempted to believe that you are right about this also.

>>from the fire of hell. Repent!

Authoritative! Commanding!

>>By the way, can I substitue pinto beans

What a transition!

But I am glad that you left a comment, as come to think of it I might not have replied to your last email. You are a bigger man than I.


Justin said...


Can you start ghostwriting my posts, to raise the standards literarywise, just until I get back on my feet, smartwise?


P.S. Charles, who?

P.S. 12 comments!

There's no doubt I'm a bigger man, that's why I need a veggie chili recipe.

You drown not by falling into a river, but by staying submerged in it. See the link below for more info.
