This is a great recipe to put together when you're in a pinch. You can
make it for any number of people (even the carnivores!) and the
ingredients are very easy to find. I've been making it since I became a
vegetarian 4 years ago (I'm 18 now), so its simple enough for younger
people to make, too.
1 can tomato paste (just about any brand will do for most of these
1 can kidney beans
2 cans black beans
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 cup TVP (Green Giant "ground b**f" works well)
chili powder to taste
Rinse the beans thoroughly to cut down on the sodium content. Combine
all ingredients into a large pot, and since they're all pre-cooked, all
you need to do is warm them up.
I usually serve this over a couple of hearty slices of wheat bread, but
brown rice would also be tasty. If you're eating this on a cold day, a
nice cup of green tea also warms you up!
