Veggie chili should definitely be one of your go-to cold-weather recipes.
It’s an incredible way to get a ton of tender vegetables in one meal, and it’s filled with plant-based protein, thanks to all of those creamy beans. Best of all, this nourishing dish provides the same satisfaction as a chili with meat, minus the meat.
This three-bean version is hearty, filling, and super delicious. Eat a big bowl on a cold day while snuggled up in an oversized sweater, and you’ll feel warm and cozy all over.
You can make a big pot on Sunday or at the start of the week and have it ready for multiple, quick meals later on. Serve it as is, or mix it up over cooked quinoa or brown rice for a nutritious punch of fiber and other good stuff.
For toppings, choose your favorites, including diced avocado, sliced radishes or chopped fresh cilantro.
