Lentil Vegetarian Chili

This is a family favorite. We love this kind of food where there's a bit of building yourself and making it your own. Great for football night in front of the TV!


  • 8 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 black jalapeño peppers, chopped 
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  2. When hot, add onion and peppers; cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables brown and begin to stick to the bottom of the pot, about 6 minutes.

The addition of recipes to the blog – Brilliant! So very helpful! I’m making this soon! I love Seedz crackers, as do the family. This will be a great appetizer next time we’re together. Thanks!
