This is one of my go-to recipes… so incredibly flexible and delicious. I’ve made it with every kind of bean and it’s always good. I do like it best with kidney beans. I added cashews and raisins to make it more like a cherished food memory, the chili at the original Einstein Brothers Bagels in Chicago, just off Michigan Avenue.
I am proud to contribute to Meatless Monday, a nonprofit initiative started in 2003 and supported by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. It echoed the popular effort during World War I to help the country use less meat and other staples which supported the war effort.
If you don’t have TVP (texturized vegetable protein) in your pantry, no worries. The beans provide plenty of protein as is. Serve over brown rice for a filling and delicious meal. Make sure the TVP is made from soy alone, if you’re gluten-free. (And organic and non-GMO, for your health. Bob’s Red Mill TVP or TSP is both.)
The renovation: I have swapped out the ground turkey for TVP, and agave syrup instead of brown sugar, and added cashews and raisins.
