I can’t get enough of vegan chili. But don’t you think, that I make the same chili over and over. Of course, the “classic” version with minced soy, beans and corn I make from time to time. But I love to vary the ingredients. I used pearl barley in my last chili, for example. This was a nice variation!

My current most-beloved chili is a chili with different beans and lentils. The lentils got in there by accident, because I made a mistake and picked a wrong can in the supermarket. I got one can borlotti beans, one can kidney beans and one can lentils. But it turned out to be a great combination.
I got the black beans from an asian supermarket, since my supermarket doesn’t offer them canned and I was too lazy to soak them the night before.

To make the chili special, I used some cocoa powder and looooooved it! To round off the taste you just add some lemon juice and maple syrup and then it’s perfect.
