Prince was vegan....

so let's give this vegan crap a shot. After all, Prince literally never aged. Still pretty sure he was not from this planet and not positive he's dead.

Anyways, this recipe sounds good, and no I am not vegan. Gotta have the meat.

Shout to Real Simple for the recipe. 

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes, including liquid
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 15.5-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 15.5-ounce can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 15.5-ounce can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • crusty bread (optional)
  1.  Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and carrots and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
  2.  Stir in the tomatoes and their liquid, 2 cups water, 1 ½ teaspoons salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper and bring to a boil.
  3.  Add the chickpeas and cannellini and kidney beans and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes.
  4.  Combine the garlic, pine nuts, parsley, remaining ¼ cup oil, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ⅛ teaspoon pepper in a small bowl.
  5.  Divide the chili among individual bowls and top with the pesto. Serve with the bread, if desired.

RIP Prince, may you never age.
