Bulk up a vegetarian chilli and add extra flavour by using meaty portabello mushrooms. Serve with soured cream, if you like.
Excellent I did not add salt as it is not necessary but did add the black pepper. - 29 Jul 2012
I thought this was a really good beginning, GOURMETGUY. As did others, I added to it. More mushrooms (button), double the garlic, cumin and oregano, a can of pinto beans, a bit of tomato sauce and beef broth and some sauteed celery and green pepper made for one hearty and delicious chili-like mushroomy dish, which went really well wih Corn Muffins I (also from this site) and honey butter the first night. Served the leftovers atop buttered egg noodles, and that was good, as well. Thanks for the recipe. - 26 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
After making a few modifications this turned out beautifully! I used one can each of kidney and black. TONS of garlic and the usual chili ingredients: carrots, celery and more tomatoes than it called for. I used quite a few more seasonings also, some cajun etc. and cooked it in a dutch oven iron skillet. Because of this I had to add more water at one point and ended up still cooking it for less than 40 mins (maybe 25? can't really remember). I also added ground turkey, though it didn't need it...the mushrooms were fantastic in it. Next time would add lots more! They made the chili! - 26 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
