This all vegetable chili comes from VRG member Nanette Blanchard and is very easy to make. It stays warm no matter how long the game lasts. If you have leftovers, mix them with some whole wheat macaroni for an easy chili mac. Serve this chili with cornbread or crackers, grated vegan cheese, diced onions, and lots of hot sauce.
