Thank you so much to everyone for your incredibly kind comments, emails, texts and messages about my last post! I’ve been prepping for the trip by making lots of recipes in advice so that I can keep sharing them throughout the time I’m away with you guys, in case I can’t make recipes for the blog while I’m there. Needless to say – this was a very delicious process, and one of the recipes I made that I couldn’t get enough of was this One Pot Red Lentil Chili. Oh my gosh. WHAT a chili!
Whether you’re prepping for Thanksgiving, it’s cold by you or you’re a chili fan like me, you are really going to love this chili. This Red Lentil Chili was inspired by my Vegan Crockpot Chili and by you! Several of you asked me for a stovetop chili. It was the first “short time” chili that I made and I am honestly so glad I did.
I’m happy to present that this is one of the last satisfying meals I’ve had in a long time. The flavours are so incredibly developed in just half an hour of being on the stove, but I feel like they taste even better the next day. Not only that, but it takes such a short time to make! I honestly didn’t know that the flavours could develop so richly and so deeply but the low and slow simmer really does help that.
This chili lasts in the fridge up to 10 days. You can also easily freeze it in a Tupperware container and thaw it in the fridge overnight when needed.
You can also make a cashew sour cream recipe to go on top.
*The chili pepper makes it spicy! If you want it less spicy, de-seed the pepper)
