While not your typical chili, this take on chile verde (green chili) contains a delicious dose of cumin and coriander, making vegan green tomatillo chili a viable, satisfying choice for everyone, including carnivores.



    1. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, heat olive oil. Sauté onions and peppers for about 5 minutes, until vegetables are translucent.

    2. Add garlic, cumin, coriander and chili powder. Sauté for 2 minutes more, until spices are fragrant.

    3. Add tomatillos, green tomatoes, 1 can garbanzo beans, beer, broth powder and water. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring frequently, for about 20 to 30 minutes, until stew is thick.

    4. Into a blender, pour stew and puree. Return to saucepan.

    5. Add remaining can of garbanzo beans and cook over low heat for an additional 5 minutes, until beans are warm.

    6. Garnish with cilantro, sour cream and chips, if desired.

    For best flavor, toast whole cumin and coriander seeds, then grind with a mortar and pestle.
