Vegetarian Chili

Here is my recipe for Vegetarian Chili.  It’s basic, so you can have fun with it!  If you like a spicy chilli, then add your favourite kind of heat – jalapeño peppers, red chili flakes, hot sauce, etc.  If you want your chili to have a sweet finish, add a handful of frozen sweet corn just before it finishes cooking.  That’s the great thing about this recipe, you can really make it your own!

Bulgur is made from wheat and, in this recipe, sucks up the excess liquid to make the chilli thick, nutritious, and delicious!  Try it.
