Moby's Improvised Chili

A hearty chili that vegans and carnivores will love!
Moby's Improvised Chili
  • Onions, maybe 5? (5 onions, diced)
  • Garlic cloves, I don't know . . . 10 cloves? (10 cloves garlic, minced)
  • 10 or so? tomatoes (10 plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped)
  • 4 cups water or vegetable stock
  • Frozen corn, a few bags (6 cups frozen corn)
  • 6 cups sliced seitans
  • 3 cans black beans (15 ounces each)
  • Lots of chili powder (1 cup chili powder)
  • 1 tube polenta (18 ounces polenta, chopped into 1" cubes)
  • 1 tub tofu (16 ounces extra-firm tofu, drained and cut into 1" cubes)
  • 1 tub tofu (16 ounces extra-firm tofu, drained and cut into 1" cubes)
  • Cornbread
  • Fresh salsa
  • Salt, optional

* According to Moby, there are no real measurements here--you just kind of throw a bunch of stuff in a pot and at some point you decide it's done.


Add the corn, seitan, black beans, chili powder, polenta, and tofu. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring, so the chili doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot.

Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and cook for 3 hours.

Serve with cornbread and fresh salsa. Salt it, if you wish.
