Tree Hugger's Terrific Organic Vegetarian Chili

This is a recipe I invented during a church chili cookoff. I made it with all organic ingredients, but it can be made with conventional ones as well. Even better the next day and freezes well.

Chop first 7 ingredients and saute in olive oil. When onions become transparent, add all spices andd saute for 1 minute. Add the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium heat for 1 minute, stirrring constantly and the turn to simmer. Simmer covered for 15 minutes and then uncovered for 45 minutes stirring frequently to prevent sticking. If needed, you can add a little vegetable broth to prevent it becoming too thick. Cool and refrigerate overnight. Reheat the next day. Excellent served over brown rice with a side salad and garlic toast.
