1 16oz can black beans
1 16oz can red beans
1 cup dry lentils OR 1 16oz can lentils
4 bell peppers
1 large white onion
5-6 cloves garlic
1 24oz can crushed tomatoes
Fresh chopped cilantro
1/2 cup vegetable broth
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp nutritional yeast (more to taste)
1-2 tsp salt (more to taste)
1/2-1 tsp black pepper
- Dice the onion and mince the garlic. Add to large pot, either with olive oil or a little water and sauté on medium heat, until onions became translucent.
- Chop up the bell pepper and add to pot. Once the peppers are softened, add vegetable broth, tomatoes, and the beans*
- Mix together, add spices and let cook on medium heat for 10-15 minutes. If you like spicy chili, you can add hot sauce, hot peppers or some ground cayenne pepper.
- Serve and garnish with fresh cilantro, vegan sour cream, vegan cheese, nutritional yeast, or whatever your heart desires!
- Enjoy (:
*Note: If using dry lentils, you may need to add more vegetables broth because the beans will absorb liquid as they cook.
