Like most children, spicy chili is not ranked high as a go-to dish like pizza and chicken fingers. I made this meal with enough heat to satisfy my guests but not too much fire where my children will be clawing up the walls in search of anything to put the flames out. With the combo of spices, the taste was spot on, giving this a dish a more smokey, rich flavour than a “light-your-mouth-on-fire” aftertaste.Vegan Chili in a bowl with cashew sour cream, scallions

Kid 1 likes meat, Kid 2 can live without it… so a chili that is not only healthy and loaded with an array of nutritiously packed ingredients, but is also hearty and rich enough to satisfy a true meat-eater was born.Vegan Chili in a bowl with cashew sour cream, scallions

To add an extra bonus of texture and flavour, I threw in a dollop of my dairy free cashew sour cream. With the smooth consistency and subtle taste, adding a little of this non-dairy cream gives this savory dish an incredibly unique balance. The best part about this entire meal is every ingredient is supper healthy without compromising the taste of a classic chili dish!Vegan Chili in a bowl with cashew sour cream, scallions

Cashew Sour Cream

Instructions
  1. In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, carrots, and celery. Stir occasionally until onions are translucent and vegetables are tender about 5 - 7 minutes. Mix in red peppers, sweet potatoes, mushrooms and allow it to cook for 5 more minutes.
  2. Add the dry ingredients (oregano, cumin, basil, chili, and paprika) and stir well for a few minutes. Then mix in the diced tomatoes, broth, tomato paste, vinegar, and all the beans.
  3. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and stir in the cilantro and parsley. Cover with a lid and simmer for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, mixing occasionally, until the sweet potatoes are tender and the chili reduces to a heartier consistently. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. For the cashew sour cream: Soak the cashews for 8 hours or overnight in water. Discard the soaking water and add all the ingredients into a vitamix or blender. Blend until it is a smooth consistency. If needed, add more water until you have reached a creamy texture. Transfer into an air-tight container and chill in the refrigerator for up to a week or freeze it for about a month. Yields: 2 cups
  5. Transfer the chili into a bowl and garnish with a dollop of the cashew sour cream, sliced avocado, and scallions. Enjoy!
