Vegan White Bean Chili


Chili is a hit at almost any time of the year, but especially during the doldrums between Christmas and New Years. This vegan chili is especially good for the after-the-holiday-food-coma we sometimes succumb to once all the festivities and goodies have been consumed with reckless abandon.


Clean eating can be as simple as using nothing but plant-based ingredients to make a classic comfort food. And since we're all still in and out of consciousness from the food coma, having it be a simple one-pot no brainer makes it taste even better somehow.
