Recipes for Hearty Vegan Dinners

This is a simple bean and vegetable chili that can be on the table in less than an hour. Just don't serve with sour cream or cheddar, and you've got a vegan meal. You can use light kidney beans, dark kidney beans, black beans or any combination of the three. The most arduous task in this recipe is all the dicing of the vegetables, so it's a chance to really use those knife skills if you want this recipe to take its promised 45 minutes on a weeknight. You'll be dicing an onion, carrot, bell pepper, and zucchini, as well as mincing some garlic.
