This chili is based off a chili from the restaurant Hard Times Cafe in Alexandria, Va. Textured soy protein is a great addition that creates tiny chunks of soy. These chunks almost look like meat chunks that can be great at fooling any meat lover. Leaving the chili to cool overnight is not mandatory, but it does taste better after leaving it to cure.
This is a great healthy salad recipe that is light and filling. Perfect for adding with some nuts, tempeh, or grilled Halloumi cheese.
