Plant based vegan chilli

This is my all time favourite plant- based veggie chilli. I’ve been making it for years and is now such a staple that I make it every week either for dinner or pack it up for lunch.

I serve it with brown rice, homemade salsa and guacamole. (I’ll share these recipes with you another time.)

This is another recipe that you can batch cook, freeze it in individual portions and take them out whenever you need them.
