A little goes a long way, as this dish is really filling, that’s why the serving size is 280 g. Serve this delicious dish with a dollop of our homemade Thick and Creamy, Easy Vegan Sour Cream.

1 280 g small serving provides you with 268.5 kcal, 38% of the protein, 84% of the vitamin C, 40% of the calcium, 247.1% of the thiamin, 218.2% of the riboflavin, 109.6% of the niacin, 197.2% of the vitamin B6, 49.9% of the vitamin B12, and 55% of the manganese recommended daily.

Calling a dish “Texas Style Chili”, especially if you’re not a native of that state or even a citizen of the US, may be asking for trouble, but believe us, we have been working on this recipe for months. To make Texas chili, you really only need to remember one thing. No Beans allowed! It also means no tomatoes and generally no chili powder either! It’s what Texans call a “Bowl o’ Red”.

This recipe freezes perfectly once cooled. Store into air-tight containers, and freeze for up to 3 months. You can serve this chili with chili cheese fries (our favourite way ever!), tacos, burritos, rice, baked potatoes, etc.

Instructions
 

VEGAN MEAT "CARNE VEGANA"

  • Preheat the oven to 356ºF/180ºC.
  • In a large bowl, combine the canola oil, nutritional yeast, white miso paste, Japanese soy sauce, freshly ground black pepper, garlic powder, and tomato paste, until a smooth soft paste has formed.
  • Crumble the drained and dried with paper towels tofu into bite-sized pieces (2 cm radius aprox) and place inside the large bowl. Mix well, using a sturdy spatula until all the tofu's been coated.
  • Line two baking trays with sheets of parchment paper.
  • Spread the coated tofu evenly over the lined baking trays. Bake in batches, on the middle rack of the oven for 45 minutes. Take out of the oven to stir through. Place back inside and bake again for 10-20 more minutes, or until it's looking chewy and dry. Be careful not to burn it!

CHILI SAUCE

  • Gently toast the chilis in a skillet over low-medium heat until fragrant.
  • Place the toasted chilis in a bowl and cover them with very hot water. Let them soak in the very hot water for 30 minutes.
  • Drain, split, and remove the stems and seeds of the chilis.
  • In a high-speed blender, combine the chilis, freshly ground cumin, freshly ground pepper, sea salt, and water, and blend until a very smooth sauce forms. Use a fine mesh sieve to strain the chili mixture, and discard the solids.

CHILI

  • In a large non-stick skillet, over medium-low heat, heat the canola oil, and sauté the chopped onion and minced garlic for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the vegetable broth and chili sauce.
  • Dissolve the cornstarch in the 1 cup of water, until there are no lumps. Add it to the skillet. Bring the skillet to a simmer. Reduce the heat to a low simmer and cook until there are approximately 2 cups of liquid left. It takes about 1 hour.
  • Stir in the Muscovado sugar, distilled white vinegar, and baked tofu bites, and let simmer for 10 more minutes.
  • Turn off the heat and let it rest for 30 minutes before serving.
  • Enjoy this delicious and full of protein dish! And remember, a little goes a long way, this dish is SO filling!
  • Serve hot, in small amounts, in bowls, accompanied by avocado and tomato salad, cornbread, and a dollop of our Vegan Sour Cream

Notes

  • Store in a sealed container, in the refrigerator, for up to a week.
