Vegetarian Crockpot Chili with Bulgur Wheat Recipe

Even if you're a meat lover, you won't miss the meat in this Vegetarian Crockpot Chili that is extra hearty thanks to the addition of bulgur wheat. So good!

My husband and I have a problem when it comes to chili. I love it and he doesn’t. I had a hard time figuring out why he doesn’t like it. He loves tomato-based dishes, he likes beans, he likes pretty much everything else that goes into chili. Then I figured it out. He doesn’t like the taste of chili powder! So, I went ahead and made this chili that doesn’t use chili powder and, happily, it is still delicious even for a chili lover like me.

The other thing this chili doesn’t have is meat. What it DOES have is bulgur wheat, which serves as a great meat stand-in. We often use bulgur wheat to stretch the ground beef in a recipe as a healthy and economical helper, but in this case it does the job all by itself.

As it’s meatless, this recipe is perfect for Fridays during Lent. If you’re looking for more lenten meal ideas, check out the linky at the bottom of this post.

For easy clean-up, I recommend using a slow cooker liner for this dish. You can find them here. Once you are done cooking and serving, just pull the liner of the pot and throw away. You’ll be left with a totally clean slow cooker with nothing to wash!

Another great idea for work lunches is this Crock-Pot Lunch Crock Food Warmer. You can leave the warming base at work and use the removable food container to transport your lunch from home. The warming base will keep your food warm or heat your foods over time. It’s a good way to avoid standing in line to use the office microwave (which is usually pretty filthy inside anyway!)

    I love making different variations of veggie chili but I have not yet tried using bulgur wheat. This looks delicious! I like the addition of Adobo seasoning – that is the secret ingredient in all of my chili recipes.

    • I add Adobo to lots of things I cook. My hubby always seems to like everything better when it has Adobo in it and I like it too!

  4. I am a big fan of vegetarian chili! This one looks amazing. Must try soon!
