What is vegan chili soup?
Vegan chili soup is a plant-based soup version of the Southwestern favorite “chili con carne”. Known as “chili”, for short, chili con carne is an often spicy stew that contains vegetables, spices, chili powder, ground meat, and beans.
It has a tomato base and is traditionally made with ground beef. Of course, traditional chili is not vegan for this reason. Vegan chili is the same delicious stew made without the meat. In place of the meat, you might see extra beans, extra veggies, or a meat substitute such as tempeh pieces or soy mince.
Chili soup is simply a version of chili con carne with more liquid, i.e. a soup! And vegan chili soup is a version of this chili soup but without any animal products. That means that vegan chili soup is crammed with even more plant-based goodness.
Vegan chili soup boats the same tantalizing aroma, color, flavor, and spice, but without the animal fats or cruelty.
