 Vege Chili
 2 medium sized onions, chopped
 Fresh garlic, chopped (you decide how much)
 2-1/2 Tablespoons chili powder
 2 teaspoons ground cumin
 1 t dried oregano leaves, crushed
 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 
        (very mild - use more if you want)
 2 cups vegetable stock (or 2 cans)
 28 oz can of peeled tomatoes, chopped, with juice
 1 beer  (I used lite beer)
 1 teaspoon sugar
 1 teaspoon salt
 1 bay leaf
 1 tablespoon cornmeal
 2 pounds zucchini cut into 1 inch pieces
 2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
 11 oz. can whole kernel corn, drained 
 TVP (optional)
 Cook onions over low heat until soft and translucent.  Add garlic, chili
 power, cumin, oregano, and cayenne.  Cook a few minutes while stirring
 constantly.  Add vege broth.  Add tomatoes and juice, beer, sugar, salt, and
 bay leaf.
 Stop here and refrigerate up to two days if you are making this up ahead of
 time.  When ready to finish, bring to gentle simmer and continue.
 Sprinkle cornmeal over surface slowly while stirring to avoid lumps.  (At
 this point, my SO got real excited and said, it's chili, look, it looks just
 like chili).  Add zucchini and bring to boil.  Reduce heat and simmer 5
 minutes.  (Add TVP here if you are using it)  Add black beans and corn,
 simmer 5-15 minutes.   
 I served over brown rice and provided bowls of hot sauce, FF sour cream,
 chopped jalapeno peppers, and chopped onions.  I also had a loaf of wheat
 bread and several people ate their chili with that instead of the rice.
