Indian Lentil Chili

Indian Lentil Chili

Happy New Year!  As the new year rolls around, I usually try and reflect on things I want to make a difference at the beginning of the year.  Making resolutions always seems to have me veer in the opposite direction, but I am considering trying to eat mindfully might be a difference I would like to consider.  I think that maybe even eating vegetarian at least once a week is a good thing to incorporate and this chili makes it easy for me give it a good start!  If you are trying to find more ways to get lentils and legumes into your diet, this is a great chili recipe that uses the incredible aromatic spices of India like cardamon, coriander, cloves, garam masala and cumin with a tomato base.  Red kidney beans give this chili some more substance and cilantro brings the dish some fresh flavor at the end. I used a combination of red dal lentils, lentils du Puy and green lentils and started with a quick fresh time saver of Trader Joe’s mire poix which is a mixture of chopped onions, carrots and celery which made this chili even faster to make.  This chili also freezes well and is a hearty vegetarian dish with incredible depth of flavor.  Click here for the recipe….
