This vegetarian chili recipe is so hearty and so filling, you would never know this was fairly healthy. For one, it doesn’t use ground beef at all. Instead, this recipe calls for Morningstar ground beef substitute. It’s found in the frozen food section of the supermarket with the other Morningstar products. It looks like frozen ground beef and it tastes pretty darn similar, too! Here is how I put this chili together.
