Previously this blog was dedicated to the life and endeavors of a teenage vegan navigating a non-vegan world, with recipes, tips, animal activism and more! Now, as of March 2011, I am embarking on a raw food journey for health as well as ethical reasons. Although I am currently raw, I am leaving all of my previous content up, including cooked-food recipes, etc. Veganism is great for the planet, the animals, and YOU!, no matter which form of it you choose to follow :)

Mum's Amazing Chili
This is the recipe my Mum has been using since before I was born, and it's probably my favorite food.
2 large onions, sliced
2 large bell peppers, sliced (1 red and 1 green)
1 can of whole tomatoes, broken in pieces, along with the juice
5-10 jalapenos, sliced (depending on taste)
1-2 cans of kidney beans (depending on how much you like)
1 can garbanzo beans
4 TBS chili powder
1 tsp salt
1 TBS vegetable oil
1 package (12-16 oz) of soy ground meat (personally, I prefer it without)
Other hot peppers
1. In a very large, deep frying pan OR 4-quart saucepan, heat oil. 2. Saute onions and peppers (and soy meat if using) for 10 mins in oil. 3. Add other ingredients and simmer for 45 mins.
This should make around 8 servings.
That's it! This picture was taken just after the ingredients were added. It's in a small pan because tonight my mum is making a batch with meat in it.
