This vegan chili is full of flavor and tastes like it’s simmered all day: it’s rich and smoky with a good bit of heat, but not too much. The lentils and beans create a hearty bite, while the bountiful veggies offer a juicy freshness. Dried beans in specific amounts, like in this recipe, are great and even more inexpensive to purchase in bulk bins. This whole pot of chili could be made for about $10. If you aren’t following a vegan diet, this chili is amazing and slightly cooled off by topping it with sour cream or cheese.
