Healthy Vegetarian Chili Recipe & Easy Weeknight Meals
Hi Friends, I am so happy you’re joint me for the Easy Weeknight Meals Blog Hop! I am so psyched to get ideas for my own family dinners. I know there will be some amazing recipes to drool over.
Let’s talk healthy and hearty food shall we? A couple years ago, my dear Dad was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. His doctor told him that one of the things he should try to order to ease his symptoms was to cut dairy and meat out of his diet. Not an easy task! Luckily, my Mom (who is a great cook) starting coming up with tasty recipes for him. This is her Vegetarian Chili Recipe.
- 1 package of Life Smart Crumbles (original veggie protein crumbles)
- 2 cans of vegetable stock
- 3 cans of kidney beans (drained)
- 1 can of diced tomatoes
- 1 can tomato sauces

- 1 chopped onion
- 1 chopped green pepper
