Healthy Holidays: Easy Vegetarian Chili

0
393

The holidays bring celebrations centered around rich, traditional dishes. Enjoy your family traditions but stay on track the rest of the season by having a batch of this healthy, plant-based chili ready to roll.

This easy vegetarian chili recipe was developed by Renown Chef Chris Wyatt for Renown’s Healthy Heart Program

“Instead of eating unhealthy holiday leftovers for days, you can make a big batch of this chili and have it ready for watching football, relaxing and when guests are stopping by,” Wyatt says.

 

And for an even bigger time saver, before you step out for the day put all ingredients into a slow cooker for six to seven hours on low or high for four hours.
