One vegetarian favorite is the chili. A true chili vegetarian recipe cook however, knows that there is more to just randomly adding any kind of chili pepper. There are some things that you need to take into consideration with your chili vegetarian recipe.
Know Your Chili
The amount of chili in your recipe will depend mainly on your capacity to withstand its hotness. The question however is how to find out if there is too much in your chili vegetarian recipe. One basic step is to know your chili peppers. It is a fact for example that bell peppers and pimiento provide no hot taste at all so you can basically add as much as you want in a dish. Habanero and santaka chilies however are among the hottest so you would do well to add moderate amounts in your chili vegetarian recipe. The famous jalapenos are only about moderately hot and are often the favorite ingredients in a chili vegetarian recipe.
Rev Up on Moderately Hot
If you can’t take too hot habaneros then increase chili peppers in the middle or lower range of hotness. It is a fact that a chili vegetarian recipe is packed with full flavor which means that you need less of salt, sugar or other sources of flavor which are not healthy in large amounts.
Chilies have also health benefits like the antioxidants that can help clean up your system. They are also natural pain killers that do not dull all of your vital senses.
Handle Chilies Properly
Chilies do not just burn the tongue but the skin as well. Handle chilies only with your bare hands if you only have a small quantity to cut. Handling lots of chilies for a flavorful chili vegetarian recipe can burn your skin. It makes better sense to use cooking gloves with lots of hot chilies. Make sure too that the juice of chili peppers never find its way into your eyes. Chili juice on your eyes can be a very painful experience. You can also keep your skin and hands off chili peppers by grinding them instead.
Manage the Heat
If you can’t handle too much hotness from the chili, you can always remove the chili seeds and the white membrane before cutting and adding to your chili vegetarian recipe. Tomato sauce is also said to be effective in helping lessen the hotness of chili.
If the heat is already burning in your mouth, you should avoid beer and other beverages. While people still popularly use water to kill the fire of a chili recipe, yogurt and milk seem to be more effective.
Mix with Other Tastes
Chilies taste best when mixed with beans, garlic, onions, tofu and tomatoes. Just make sure that you mix your ingredients well so that the chili flavor does not stick in just some parts of the recipe but watch out for burned ingredients. Experts advise though that ingredients shouldn’t be mixed all at once since this could kill the hot taste. Saut the spices gradually to release the chili oil that holds the secret to its hot taste. Depending on the dish, you can serve a chili dish the next day to give time for flavors and tastes to mix.
* Taco Tuesday? This taco recipe is plant based, but tastes like a meaty caliente sensation! This vegan taco has everything you would want in a normal taco without the meat, dairy or eggs!!!
A taco is a traditional Mexican dish composed of a corn or wheat tortilla folded or rolled around some yummy fillings. The great thing about tacos is that they can be made with a variety of fillings, allowing for great versatility and variety. A taco is generally eaten without utensils and is often accompanied by garnishes such as salsa, avocado or guacamole, cilantro, tomatoes, onions and lettuce. What are YOUR favourite taco fillings?
Instead of traditional vegan cheese, I like to use a dairy-free queso dip to really bump this guy up a notch! This recipe has been tested by vegans and non-vegans alike and I think you are going to LOVE this animal-friendly taco recipe.
