Wine Pairings by @grapefriend

A northern Rhône wine with its blackberry-filled Syrah and a dash of elegant Viognier will be great with a meatless chili.

What To Do:

1. Measure out ½ cup of the chickpeas and set aside.

2. Make Stock: In a medium mixing bowl or large liquid measure, whisk stock concentrate into 3½ cups of very hot or boiling water. Set aside.

3. In a medium sauce pan or stock pot over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Stir in shallots, garlic, chili powder, cumin, ¼ teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

4. Stir in the cherry tomatoes and cook until they just begin to blister, 2 minutes. Stir in the pico de gallo, chick peas and ¾’s of the parsley. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes

5. Add stock, increase heat to mediumhigh bringing soup to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and allow to simmer for 10 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.

6. Make Chickpea Croutons: While soup is simmering, in a small sauté pan, over medium heat, add 2 teaspoons olive oil, the ½ cup reserved chickpeas and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until chickpeas are browned and beginning to crisp. Remove from heat.

To Serve: Divide chili between two bowls and garnish with remaining parsley and chickpea croutons.

Pro Tip:

For a thicker chili, add half of the chili to a blender and blend until smooth. Stir back into the remaining chili before serving.
