The number of people turning to a vegetarian diet is growing quickly. It can help promote weight loss, lower cholesterol, and reduce the risks of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, and osteoporosis… but who cares about all that if it doesn’t taste good?
It’s said that traditional chili absolutely does not contain beans. Well, throw that idea out the window because in this recipe, legumes will be our only protein. To many chili lovers that might be sacrilege, but one taste of this smokey and spicy goodness and even the most passionate meat eaters will come back for seconds.
