Two-Bean chili with Ground Soy

Using two varieties of beans makes this dish full-bodied. I like to eat this on its own or serve it over some brown rice or a baked potato.

1. Lightly coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray, add the oil and set over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 3 minutes or until soft. Stir in the corn and garlic and cook for another 5 minutes, or until the corn is browned, stirring occasionally. Add the ground soy and sauté for 2 more minutes.

2. Add the kidney beans, chickpeas, tomato sauce, stock, chili powder, dried basil, sugar and cumin. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce the heat. Simmer for 20 minutes or just until mixture is thickened.

3. Garnish with cheese, sour cream and fresh basil.

2 tsp vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 cup canned corn, drained
2 tsp crushed garlic
