This Vegan Lentil Chili Will Make Your Taste Buds Dance

 This tasty lentil chili is filled with smoky spices and has a rich tomato flavor, but it is lighter than the meat-filled version, thanks to the addition of barley sweet butternut squash and hearty lentils. Lentils are the perfect substitute for a meat-free chili, as they cook up earthy and meaty, and there's no browning or precooking needed.

 

This hearty vegan chili comes together very easily with the aid of a slow cooker. All you have to do is mix the ingredients together, turn it on, and come back to a bowl of delicious and comforting vegan chili.
