No Sweat Vegetarian Chili

1

Another easy and great meatless Monday recipe… vegetarian chili! Normally, I make this with hamburger meat, but with the cost of meat prices nearly double here in Japan. I try to incorporate a few veggie meals throughout the week. Now I know why all those Japanese people are so skinny. I would incorporate four nights of veggie meals if my husband would let me. It’s enough that he complains that I’m turning him into a vegetable… oh bother… I don’t hear Little One (LO) complaining.

1 glove of garlic
