    I was a veggie for a year and used to make it with exactly the same recipe, but using soya mince instead of minced beef. Did the job.

    I've been a vegan for little over a year also and make it the slow cooker I do get a chili seasoning mix.  What I use is:

    Boca Meatless Ground Crumbles
    LightLife; Gimme Lean Ground Sausage style also meatless.

    Chop up some: Red, Green, Yellow and Orange bell peppers (Onion optional)

    White Corn

    Black, Kidney and Garbanzo beans

    16oz can of natural or organic tomatoes sauce or diced canned tomatoes or both depends on your taste

    I season with Chili, Garlic, Onion, Cumin and Paprika  Powder. 

    Herb seasonings, I buy these seasonings that are in grind mills, so I can put just ground herbs in.

    If you use salt, use sea salt.  I don't like using any salt if I can, again that personal choice.   

    Put all in slow cooker with just enough water to cover everything, with the top being on it will make its own liquid.

    Put it on low before I leave to do my long day errands, when I come home its done.   

    Oh, just don't forget the crackers, cheese and the eggs while you're out.  In the morning you can make a Chili omelet.

    I usually substitute brown lentils instead of ground beef.
    You can buy them pre cooked or whole. If you have whole seeds soak overnight then boil for 20 minutes until tender.
    Heat oli in pan.Add 1 chopped onion .Simmer until brown.Add crushed garlic clove.Add one teaspoon garum masala.One teaspoon chilli powder or sliced green chilli and half teaspoon tumeric. Simmer for two minutes then add five chopped tomatoes.Once cooked add lentils.Add can of tomatoe paste this gives a sweet taste and  thick texture. Allow to simmer then serve hot with garlic bread.

    Sorry!  I haven't logged into HubPages in a while and didn't know I had a question!!!

    I have a pretty simple recipe that people really like.

    1 onion - chopped
    1 green pepper - chopped
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    2 Black bean burger patties (these are optional - I usually don't use them)
    2 large cans light red kidney beans (the largest they have - not sure the ounces)
    1 14 oz can tomato sauce
    1 large can diced tomatos
    1 large can water
    1 packet of French's Original chili seasoning

    1. Saute onion and green pepper until tender in low heat in vegetable oil.

    2. Crumble black bean patties into pot

    3.  Add the rest of ingredients to pot (including onion and green pepper). 

    4. Bring to a boil; then turn down heat to low and simmer until thickened. 

    I hope you like it.  Sorry for the delay in answering!  It's winter now, so chili sounds pretty good!
