Healthy Vegetarian Chili

This healthy vegetarian chili with three beans and tempeh is a delicious alternative to traditional chili. Add tempeh for additional protein and top with avocado for creamy, healthy good-for-you fat instead of sour cream. It will warm you head to toe! This three bean chili recipe is so tasty and filling. It is perfect for fall and winter months!

    *You can also add any other veggies, like green beans or corn, to this veggie chili! This can easily serve 6. You could also double the recipe so you have plenty of leftovers. I love vegetarian chili because it tastes even better reheated the next day
