Is there anything more delicious on a chilly day than, well, chili? No, we don't think so either. If you're looking for a lighter and less expensive alternative those those heavy, meat-intense chilies, we've got just the thing: lentil chili.


But don't worry, you're not sacrificing a bit of flavor! Katya of Little Broken explains that this dish is still packed with all the traditional chili ingredients: onions, red bell pepper, garlic, tomatoes, and chili powder. 

"Hearty, chunky, and thick, that’s what this lentil chili is all about," she says.

Katya also shares that to thicken the chili, she purees some of it in her food processor and then blends it back in. Genius!

You can top it with sour cream, cheddar cheese, croutons, tortilla chips, or chopped avocados and it's pure perfection, she says. And, best of all, it's ready in just about an hour!
