Vegetarian Chili

On Friday, I was able to go to the local farmer's market and purchase some locally grown produce. One of the meals that I made with the produce was Sparkpeople's Vegetarian Chili. It was healthy, satisifying, and delicious.

Vegetarian Chili

1 medium onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
1 tablespoon olive oil 2 medium carrots, finely chopped
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
2 (15 oz.) cans black beans, drained
1 pinch cayenne pepper, chili powder, or chili seasoning mix
1 tablespoon parsley, freshly chopped

1. Sauté the onions and garlic in oil in a large sauce pan.
2. Add carrots, tomatoes, herbs, spices, and beans.
3. Cook on medium heat for 15-20 minutes, or until the carrots are tender.
