Spicy Lentil Chili

 Spicy Lentil Chili

I love anything that is healthy and tastes good.  My Vegan Lentil Chili is a perfect example of a good for your tasty meal! I eat this filling yet light chili after a hot power yoga or on a cold snowy day.  Combining lentils with chickpeas adds protein and fiber to the vegetable mix. I make a batch freezing individual serving for later eating!

2 boxes(32 oz) organic vegetable broth, I like Full Circle organic

1 medium onion, chopped

l large red bell pepper, chopped

1 jalapeno, chopped

1 cup sliced baby carrots

5 cloves garlic, finely chopped

4 teaspoons salt-free chili powder

1 (16 oz) package brown or red lentils, Goya

2 cans(15 oz) cans no salt added diced tomatoes, I like Del Monte petite cut

2 cans (15.5 oz) Chick Peas, I like Goya Premium

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

Bring one cup broth to simmer in a large pot over medium-high heat.  Add onion, pepper, carrots and garlic cooking about 8 minutes.  Stir in chili powder cooking 1 minute, stirring constantly.  Add rest of broth and remaining ingredients except cilantro.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer covered for 30 minutes until lentils are almost tender. Uncover and cook 10 minutes longer.  Stir in cilantro and serve.
