Our vegan chili recipe will definitely be a family staple throughout the fall and winter months.  Fresh ingredients make all the difference when you’re cooking healthy and want a flavorful meal.  This chili is packed with a heart healthy balance of protein and fiber.  Enjoy it during the big game or on a busy weeknight.  We made our vegan chili in a stockpot but if you’re slow cooker is handy that will do just fine.
