  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, cook onions, mushrooms and garlic until onions start to brown, 8-10 minutes. Place mixture in slow cooker.  Stir in spinach, corn, zucchini, chili powder, cumin, oregano, parsley, salt, pepper, tomatoes, black beans, garbanzo beans, kidney beans, and tomato paste until throughly mixed.  Pour the tomato sauce and vegetable broth over the ingredients.

  • Set the cooker on low, and cook until all vegetables are tender, 4-5 hours.  Check seasoning; if chili is too thick, add more tomato sauce and vegetable broth to desire thickness. Cook additional 1-2 hours to blend flavors.
