Colorful Winter Chili (Vegan)

In the warmer months, my diet is made up of tons of fruit. However, now that it is absolutely freezing; I crave warm foods like pasta, chili, and baked potatoes. I have posted a vegan chili recipe before, but this one is a little different. As the title suggests, it is colorful. It also has spices that are better in the colder months. This recipe is packed with protein and with spices that promote immune functioning.

Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 30 minutes (at the least) | Servings: 4-6


  • 1 cup of black beans.
  • 1 cup of garbanzo beans.
  • 1/2 cup of corn.
  • 1 cup of lima beans.
  • 1/4 cup of tomatoes (quartered).
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion.
  • 1 can of tomato sauce.
  • 1 teaspoon of salt.
  • 1 teaspoon of minced garlic.
  • 1/2 tablespoon of garlic powder.
  • 1 tablespoon of ground cumin.
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder.
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika.
  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric.
  • 1 tablespoon of chili powder.
  • Cilantro (optional).



  • Saute onions and minced garlic. When onions are translucent, add in beans and tomatoes. Heat this up for about 5 minutes. Add in the tomato sauce and spices. Cook on low with the lid on for around 30 minutes. Store in containers when done cooking.


You don’t have to follow this recipe exactly. Season this chili tailored to your specific preferences. If you want to make it a little spicier, add in 1/2 cup of salsa. Vegan friendly and I believe it is gluten free. In my opinion, it tastes better when you let it sit overnight in the refrigerator. I eat this dish with potatoes and roasted veggies. You could also put it in a baked potato or on top of a carrot dog/vegan hot dog.

I hope you enjoy this recipe. The last post I made was my 100th post! I can’t believe it and I am so happy that I started blogging! If you have a favorite winter dish, tell me about it in the comments.
