Lentil Chili Delicious

Lentil Chili Delicious

Meatless?” That was hubbys reaction when I said we’re having vegetarian chili but after few bites I won him over.

I had my doubts a little too when I first made this chili as I’m always a little skeptical of dishes that are changed to an extreme to make them “healthier.” Like substituting chocolate with something that resembles chocolate but ingredients are far from chocolate? Not a fan. I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m all about clean eating but changing a recipe to a point to make it so healthy that half of the ingredients are man made and not even real? Not a fan.
