Reviews for Vegetarian Bean and Vegetable Chili
"My whole family loves it. My 2 and 3 year old boys always finish their dinner. I serve it over rice. It also freezes well."
"Sounds nice except Worcestershire sauce isn't Vegetarian. It has anchovies in it. Will try with a Vegetarian sauce instead to make it vegetarian."
