For this week’s meal prep, I decided to make some chili. The weather is cooling a bit here in Georgia, and I had some cravings. I decided to buy some of the tofu at the store and just make a simple basic chili.
The ingredients were rather inexpensive. I keep going to Fresh Market, and I love that everything seems really fresh, since I can’t make it to the farmers market all the time.
It was really easy to make everything in one pot. I like these one pot recipes! I also got a chance to use my food processor. I have issues cutting onions, and I like to make it quick.
I loved the organic beans I found, everything just tasted so fresh. I am really looking forward to lunch this week.
- ½ bag tofu crumbles (I used Gardein brand)
- 1tbsp olive oil
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 2 cloves, garlic
- 8oz. mushrooms, chopped
- 2 bell peppers
- 1 tsp of brown sugar
- 2 tsp of oregano
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 2 15oz can of kidney /chili beans
- 2 15oz cans diced organic fire roasted tomatoes
- Heat olive oil in pot. Add onion and garlic and saute for 5 mins. Add mushrooms and peppers and saute for another 5 minutes.
- Add "beef" crumbles, add spices. Saute for another 7-10 minutes.
- Add beans and tomatoes, stirring to combine. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce to low heat. Simmer for about an hour.
I am sure this will be great this week! Have you meal prepped chili before?
