  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons The Spice Hunter chili powder

To make the Chili

Add olive oil to a heavy bottom soup pot, next adding the onion and garlic cloves. Sauté until the onion and garlic turn translucent. Add the chili powder and cook until aromatic. Add the diced tomatoes, black beans and vegetable stock, bringing to a boil and then reducing to a simmer. Simmer for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally and adding water intermittently if needed. Next, add the cauliflower and continue to simmer for 20 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender. Check the soup seasoning, adding salt and pepper, and more chili powder if needed. Ladle into bowls and garnish with your choice of accoutrements.
