On my birthday I made up my own recipe for chili… and it turned out delicious!! Here it is.


2 cans red kidney beans
Grapeseed oil
1 package Gimme Lean ground beef
3-4 carrots, thinly diced
3-4 stalks of celery,thinly diced
1 yellow pepper, diced
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 tablespoon fine sea salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 can diced tomatoes
Chopped scallions, for serving
Shredded vegan cheddar cheese, for serving
Diced avocado, for serving


Heat about 1-2 tablespoons of the oil in a large pot. Add the carrots, celery, and pepper to the pot and sauté for about 7-10 minutes, until mostly tender. Add the chili powder, salt, pepper, oregano, and cumin and cook for 1 minute.
Next, add the Gimme Lean beef to the pot and break it up into small crumbles. Add the 2 cans of red kidney beans and the can of diced tomatoes and cook until heated through, about 10-15 minutes.
Served garnished with scallions, avocado, and vegan cheddar cheese with a side of vegan cornbread. Yum!
