Vegetarian Chili


  • 2 Tbs. veg.oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 lb. chopped tomatoes
  • 2-3 ears worth of corn kernels
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1/2 lb. shell beans (yes, shelled)
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 zucchini, diced
  • 1 summer squash, diced
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 3 Tbs. chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne
  • salt to taste
  • Accompaniments: optional MEAT (just kidding), rice…

 As usual, nothing here is set in stone. A variety of veggies is fun, but it works just as well with all the same squash, canned tomatoes, canned kidney or black beans….also, if you have fresh veggies – use them and make your own adjustments! Of course, fresh hot peppers are a great addition too.


Heat oil in 4+ qt pot and sauté onion, garlic, and chili powder for 5 minutes. Add peppers and sauté another 5 minutes. Add squash and other spices; sauté 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, corn, and beans if fresh; cook 10 minutes. Stir in salt and canned beans if using; cook 5 minutes or until everything is the texture you’re looking for.

About stillmansfarm

Stillman's Farm® is a family owned farm in Massachusetts. We currently operate at two locations: a greenhouse/retail business in Lunenburg, and the majority of vegetable production in New Braintree. Glenn Stillman started the business in Lunenburg over 20 years ago and now enjoys the promise of the next generation further expanding the very diverse enterprise. The farm also has several Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs established in Boston, Lunenburg, Jamaica Plain, Brookline, New Braintree and the Southborough/Framingham area. In addition, the Stillman's trucks have become a fixture at the Boston Area Farmer's Markets. Our Philosophy Most of Stillman's produce is grown without chemicals. For a few crops this simply is not feasible. For these particular crops, we participate in the State Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. This entails systematic scouting of fields, protection of beneficial insects, bio-controls, and well-timed applications of only the safest pesticides. With growing concern about genetically modified organisms (GMO), as a patron you can be confident that none of the produce we grow have been engineered, in fact, we often experiment with many heirloom varieties! Conscientiously Grown® The combination of no pesticides, good cultivation management, and IPM practices allows us to offer the widest possible selection of fruit and vegetable varieties and be a thriving sustainable farm. We have developed our own label, "conscientiously grown" to convey our commitment to the safety of our environment, family and customers. All of our hormone free, pasture raised meats carry a conscientiously grown label too!
