Zesty Vegetarian Chili

Ingredients
1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
1 large red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
2 medium zucchini or yellow squash (or 1 of each), cut into 1/2-inch chunks
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (about 14 ounces) fire-roasted diced tomatoes
3/4 cup chunky salsa
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 can (about 15 ounces) no-salt-added red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
10 ounces extra firm tofu, well-drained and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
Chopped cilantro (optional)

Directions
1 – Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add bell pepper; cook and stir 4 minutes. Add zucchini and garlic; cook and stir 3 minutes.

2 – Stir in tomatoes, salsa, chili powder, and oregano; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

3 – Stir in beans; simmer 2 minutes or until heated through. Stir in tofu; remove from heat. Ladle into bowls; garnish with chopped cilantro.

Note: Tofu is made from the curds of soybean milk. It has a bland, slightly nutty taste, but readily takes on the flavor of foods it’s cooked with. It’s available in 3 forms: soft, firm, and extra-firm. Cover any leftover tofu with water and refrigerate.

Yield: 4 servings. Serving size: 1 1/2 cups.
