Cut 1 onion, 6 cloves of garlic, fry in about 1T oil with 1 teaspoon of salt.
Fried items (what you just fried)
Dark red kidney beans (drained, rinsed, about 16 oz can)
Another similar can of beans, probably a different type if available.
Diced tomatoes (about 14 oz can)
Red lentils (dry, 0.25 cup)
2 cups of water (Adjust this for preferred texture. Watch lentils absorb water in initial cooking.)
1 Tablespoon of paprika
Liberal amount of cilantro
1-2 bay leaves
2 shakes of sage
1 package (about 12 oz) of imitation burger
1 package (optional) Nature’s Soy vegan beef (8 oz)
Bring to a boil. When it looks like chili, turn off the heat.
Eat now or reheat and enjoy later! Eat with rice, tortillas, cornbread, or other grain.
