Meatless Monday: Spicy Tofu Chili

Spicy Tofu Chili

I'm posting my Meatless Monday recipe early as I have a Secret Recipe Club post going up tomorrow. Hope this gives you a extra day to plan for your Meatless Monday meal.

Now that things are cooling down, I’m hankering for some chili. Believe it or not, you can do a chili for Meatless Monday – just use tofu and chili beans for a big serving of non-meat protein. If you need it to be a bit “meaty” looking throw in some soy crumbles. Or you can dress it up with canned diced tomatoes (with or without jalapenos).

What I love about this dish is that it’s ready quickly and doesn’t need to sit on the stove top (or in the slow cooker) for hours. Perfect for quickly fixing just before Monday Night Football starts!
