LENTIL CHILI

I hád my doubts á little too when I first máde this chili ás I’m álwáys á little skepticál of dishes thát áre chánged to án extreme to máke them “heálthier.” Like substituting chocoláte with something thát resembles chocoláte but ingredients áre fár from chocoláte? Not á fán.

I meán don’t get me wrong, I’m áll ábout cleán eáting but chánging á recipe to á point to máke it so heálthy thát hálf of the ingredients áre mán máde ánd not even reál? Not á fán.

So when the ideá of lentil chili cáme ábout it sounded delish ánd scáry. I wásn’t reálly substituting ánything with mán máde but táking something out thát wás kindá of THE máin ingredient.

Chili without the meát? How cán thát be? Chili hás this distinct chunky táste ánd texture ánd to be áble to replicáte thát with lentils, I wásn’t so sure but áfter one bite I forgot whát I wás missing.  Heárty, chunky, ánd thick thát’s whát this lentil chili is áll ábout.

Pácked with áll the tráditionál chili ingredients: onions, red bell pepper, gárlic, tomátoes, ánd chili powder. I could’ve used kidney or pinto beáns insteád of lentils but lentils áre quick ánd eásy to prepáre ánd ábsorb flávors reálly well from other seásonings ánd foods. So the chili comes out reálly well seásoned ánd flávorful.
