What to do
- In a large Dutch oven or saucepot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat until the oil begins to shimmer in the pan.
- Add the onions, carrots, garlic, and jalapeños and season with salt.
- Stir in the paprika, oregano, cumin, coriander, and chili powder until the vegetables are well coated in the seasonings.
- Add the chickpeas, crushed tomatoes, and vegetable broth to the pot and simmer over moderate heat covered for 25 to 30 minutes to let the chili deepen in flavor.
- Add in the beets in the last 10 minutes of cooking to lightly stain and sweeten the chili. Taste to adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
- To serve, ladle the chili into individual bowls, and serve hot with sour cream or favorite non-dairy alternative, radish slices, avocado, cilantro, toast, etc.
