Vegetarian Chili with Hemp Hearts

Ever tried hemp hearts in your vegetarian chili? Hemp hearts are shelled hemp seeds that make for a highly nutritious serving of hemp nutrients, minerals, vitamins, and proteins that will immediately increase the health factor of this vegetarian chili dish. Whether for lunch, dinner, (even breakfast?), hemp hearts are a great addition. Plus, the hearts will add a welcomed crunchier texture and a touch of nutty flavor that will blend well with the beans, tomatoes, and onions. Make it before the big football game, a cold evening, or for a quick snack.

Ingredients:

½ bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 carrots, chopped
1 tablespoon hemp oil
1 cup vegetable stock
1 cup fresh corn
3 ½ cups tomato sauce
1 can chickpeas, 15-oz, rinsed and drained
1 can kidney beans, 15-oz, rinsed and drained
1 tbsp red curry paste
2 tbsp chili powder
¼ cup hemp hearts
Salt and Pepper

Directions:
Use a large pot to sauté the onion and garlic for two minutes, stirring regularly. Throw in the carrots and bell pepper and sauté for an additional five minutes. Add in the remaining ingredients, minus the hemp hearts. Place the burner on a low heat and let the chili simmer for 60 minutes. Sprinkle the hemp hearts onto the chili just as you’re ready to serve. If you want, you can also top your serving of chili with guacamole, Greek yogurt, chopped green onions and shredded cheese. Serve with a handful of tortilla chips.

If you’re going to be out for the entire day, or prefer to make your meals ahead of time, you can also cook up this vegetarian chili using a slow cooker. Simply toss all the ingredients into the slow cooker, minus the hemp hearts, and set the cooker to a low heat for six to eight hours. The hemp hearts and any other toppings should be added right before you’re about to eat.

Hemp hearts can be used in many recipes to immediately increase the nutrition value of any dish. Click to find more recipes you can immediately add to your kitchen repertoire.
