“This recipes makes for a great vegetarian chili. I reduced the cumin to 1 tablespoon, as I am not cumins biggest fan.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a large heavy pot over medium-low heat. Add the onions, garlic and peppers. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables have wilted. Add the chili powder, cumin, oregano, allspice, and red pepper flakes and cook for 1 minute longer, stirring to coat the vegetables well with spices.
  2. Stir in the tomatoes with their juices, the red wine, butternut squash, orange zest, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes, or until the squash is tender. Adjust the seasonings to taste.
  3. Fold in the kidney beans and simmer 10 minutes longer. Just before serving, stir in the cilantro and parsley. Serve garnished with the scallions.
