One Pot Vegetarian Chili

by Ruvi Makuni

Do you deal with comfort food cravings during these cold winter months?

Aside from staying inside more often than usual, colder months can cause us to desire heavy, warm foods that will ground us.

On those chilly fall and winter days, a hearty bowl of soup or one pot chili is the perfect meal to cozy up with in front of the roaring fireplace. What’s even better is that there’s nothing simpler than a one pot dinner. There’s minimal prep involved, no complicated recipe steps to follow, and only one pan to wash when you’re done.

Your whole meal cooks at the same speed, without having to cook different ingredients at different temperatures, and it’s just one of my favorite types of meals to make—so easy, so delicious, so many options.

Quick tip: Stock up on the soup/chili staples so you have them ready for those busy nights.
