      Title: Carol's favorite vegetarian chili
 Categories: Chili, Stews, Damyankee, Vegetarian
      Yield: 6 Servings
      1 lg Onion; chopped
      3    Garlic clove; crushed &
      2 tb Oil
      1    Celery rib; diced
  1 1/2 ts Chili powder
      1 ts Cumin
    1/2 ts Cayenne pepper
      1 c  Tomato; chopped
      2 tb Tomato paste
      4 c  Beans, kidney, black, pinto
           -and/or garbanzo; cooked
    1/2 lb Tofu; crumbled (opt)
  1 1/2 ts Salt
      1 ts Oregano
  Saute onion and garlic in oil until onion is soft. Add celery and
  spices. Saute another 2-3 minutes. Add tomato and paste. Mash 2 cups
  of the beans and add beans and tofu to the pot along with the salt
  and oregano. Simmer 30 minutes.
  To cook raw beans:
  Soak beans in water overnight, OR boil for 2 minutes and let sit,
  covered, for 1 hour.  Bring to a boil in same water and simmer about
  1 hour or until tender. (beans approximately double in volume, i.e.,
  two cups raw = 4 cups cooked)
  Notes:  I like cooking my own beans rather than buying canned beans.
  :       I use as many different beans as I have at home. Usually at
  :       least 3 of the 4 mentioned, and one of the 3 must be black
  :       beans because they are my absolute favorite.
  :       Add or subtract cayenne pepper for hotness level.
  :       A bit more cumin may be good too, I have yet to determine
  :       though.
