This chili recipe is super flexible and can be made in one pot on the stove or simmer all day in a slow cooker. It also freezes wonderfully!
Combine in slow cooker:
2 cartons veggie broth or 8 cups water
2 cans diced or crushed tomatoes
1 cup of a dry grain (uncooked):
quinoa (any color) or millet
1-2 Cans Strained Beans or 1-2 Cups Dry

*soak dry beans overnight with sea salt or a piece of kombu seaweed
Pick 3-4 Diced Veggies
onion / garlic / any color bell peppers / sweet potato / corn / zucchini / carrots / jalapeno
*any dark leafy greens (add these 15 minutes before serving)
1 to 2 tsp each (or just pick what you like or have on hand)
cumin / coriander / paprika / oregano / chili powder
*wait to add sea salt till the end, otherwise it will cook out and you'll end up adding more at the table

Grocery Store Tips
Choose a veggie combo or mix and match:
Shred veggies (I use a food processor, but a grater, sprilizer, or cutting them extremely fine would work too). Sprinkle veggies with sea salt and let them sit for 15-20 min.
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl:
1/2 cup chickpea flour
1 tbs ground flax seeds
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon dried herb or spice of choice (see combos above)
black pepper to taste
Squeeze veggies with hands to remove water.
Combine the dry mix with the veggies and stir well. Form into lime sized balls then flatten into patties. Be delicate, they won't hold together super well on their own yet.
Heat oil in a skillet on medium high then cook patties about 4-5 min on each side (cover skillet with a lid) add oil between sets allowing a few minutes for oil to heat. Be careful not to overcrowd the pan (2-4 patties at a time)
Serve warm with a creamy sauce (such as an organic plain yogurt, organic or vegan sour cream, or a home made ranch), hot sauce and sliced avocado
