{Recipe}Three Bean Quinoa Chili


Lately I've been all about trying to recreate soups I've had a local cafe.  This time it was their veggie chili.  I've made lots of vegetarian chilis ....
White Bean Vegetarian Chili

..but this one was different.   It had quinoa in it which I've never added to chili.  
 Time to try and break it down!  Here's my inspiration photo.  You can see it has chickpeas, black beans, kidney beans, corn, celery and quinoa in it.
Three Bean Quinoa Chili
Ingredients:
1 small-medium onion, chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1/2 yellow pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1-2 cups cooked quinoa
3 (15.5 oz) cans of beans of your choice (I used black, pinto and kidney-forgot the chickpeas!), drained and rinsed
2 (14.5 oz) cans of chopped tomatoes 
2 TBS tomato paste
1/2 -1 cup frozen corn (optional-I also forgot to add this)
1-2 TBS chili powder (depending on how spicy you want it)
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 - 1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf
To make:
Saute the onion, celery, garlic and peppers in some water or olive oil until translucent.  Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes.  Adjust seasoning to taste.
Enjoy with your favorite toppings.
