Baste a few times in between

Healthy Crock pot Vegetarian Chili

Healthy Crock pot Vegetarian Chili

I am a big fan of the crock pot but living alone most of the time, I have a hard time eating everything before it goes bad, over eating, or freezing a bunch and never touching it again.

Chili is a pretty simple meal that you can put almost anything you want in it and it will taste great. I have been craving chili for some time now.

My plan this time is to eat it for lunch and dinner today, Dinner tomorrow and then I will come up with something different the following night- like eating it with spaghetti squash.
I should have enough to freeze for a few meals later on as well.


1 -Can Chick peas
1- Can Kidney beans
1- Can mixed beans
1- Can diced tomatoes

2 medium white onions diced
2 carrots diced
2 stalks celery diced
1 red pepper diced
2 yams diced

dried parsley
3 tablespoons of your favorite Chili seasoning

Then just dump it all in the crock pot and let it cook
4 hours on high or about 6 on low
