Vegan Chili with that traditional flavor

One thing I’ve truly loved about growing up in New York is the privilege of experiencing all four seasons. Although summer coming to a close is always a bummer, it’s time to make way for our old friend, Autumn! With fall comes beautiful colors, festivities, spices, and….. FOOTBALL. What comes with football season? APPS AND SNACKS.

Before going plant based my favorite football Sunday snacks were wings and a zesty bowl of chili. Honestly, I forgot how much I dig chili until this past Sunday when my friend made her delicious signature vat of chili. I figured if anyone can help me put together a plant based vegan chili, all while still holding that signature zap of flavor, it’d be my friend Danielle. Danielle was super excited to help me put together this recipe and the out come was way better than anything we imagined. Thou not surprised, there has yet to be a single bad dish to come out of her kitchen. Not only is this vegan chili delicious, it’s just as good for your body as it is for your taste buds.

That being said, throw on your jersey, crab some chips, and get ready for a blissful bowl of flavor. It’s game time baby.
