Chock Full of Veggies Chili

January 5, 2016

This recipe originated from the South Beach Diet website, but I went a little bonkers and added even more veggies and spices. I also added fresh lime juice and topped it off with plain Greek yogurt. The result is an incredible bowl of veggie chili. Enjoy!

1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 red bell peppers, seeded and chopped
1 1/2 cups crimini mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
2 medium zucchini, diced
1 large yellow onion, chopped
2 celery stalks, diced
2 large carrots, diced
5 fresh garlic cloves, minced
3 Tablespoons chili powder
2 Tablespoons dried oregano
2 Tablespoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 (15-oz.) cans black beans, un-drained
1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes, un-drained
2 cups vegetable stock
1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce
