I just freaking love an easy recipe. Bonus points if it’s a One-Pot recipe. Triple points if I can make a big enough batch that it’ll last my family a week! This Vegan 3 Bean Chili hits all of those marks. I’m gonna have to talk more about this Vegan 3 Bean Chili to please the SEO gods, so feel free to skip down to the recipe. It’s a really easy one!
This Vegan 3 Bean Chili was my first time using these Lightlife products. I’d had their Smart Dogs in the past and was just really craving the Turkey Chili I used to make in my meat eating days. I knew my Vegan 3 Bean Chili would require some kind of fake ground beef, so I just searched Instacart for Impossible Burger and found this under related items.
For my Vegan 3 Bean Chili I actually did one package of this.
And three packages of this. Not a huge difference and I think it would actually be more practical to use 4 of this since you’re aiming for the crumbled texture vs. creating patties.
