This chili is hearty, healthy and delicious in one bowl. Not only is it a snap to put together but the spices give it a delightful kick that most vegan chilis lack. The recipe makes enough to have for dinner tonight and leftovers for tomorrow’s lunch so you don’t need to worry about prepping multiple meals. Feel free to add a starch such as quinoa or farro to your starch pan if you’re looking for a very filling meal. This chili also freezes well so you can save extra for your next meatless meal.
