This next year though I'll have my own garlic as I planted a bunch this past fall. I planted a few small rows of the generic garlic that everyone has, but I also bought some different varieties to try. These were in a hardneck sample pack from the Garlic Store and included Chesnok Red, Georgia Fire, Spanish Roja, and Siberian.
Bike Fuel Recipe for Simple Vegetarian Chili:
1 cup TVP (before reconstituting) and soy sauce
2 cups chopped onions
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon paprike
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon oregano
(1/4 cup chili powder optional)
4 cups chopped tomatos
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3-4 cups cooked kidney beans
Saute reconstituted TVP in soy sauce, set aside. Saute onions and garlic in good oil, add paprika, oregano, and cumin (and optional chili powder) and stir until absorbed. In a pot add the tomatoes, sugar, salt with the onion/garlic mixture (add optional green peppers now), bring to boil and simmer for 20 minutes.
Then add the beans and TVP, simmer covered 15-20 minutes or until desired thickness. Serve with cheese or sour cream if desired, and piping hot corn bread.
