  • Hearty Vegetarian Chili

    Hearty Vegetarian Chili

    Many vegetarian chilies eat more like soups, but ours is built to satisfy a meat-lover. Bulgur wheat and mushrooms combine to mimic the texture and flavor of ground beef; chili powder, smoked paprika and chocolate stout lend deep, authentic flavor without a long simmer.

  • Three Sisters Corn-and Chili Chowder

    Diane Nemitz of Ludington, Michigan, kept cooking with the native American "three sisters"---corn, beans and squash---until she created this satisfying soup. "I've been experimenting with corn chowders for a while," she notes. "This is the one my husband liked best. Roasting the corn kernels makes the difference."

  • Maple-Chile Butternut Soup

    Chili Verde with Corn Bread Croutons

    Bulgur wheat lends meaty texture, fiber and protein to soups and stews, where it can cook in the broth. In our sweet and savory chili, we match the grain with salsa verde, peppers and edamame—a weeknight meal that makes it oh-so-easy to be green.
