Chocolate Chickpea Quinoa Chilli

Chocolate Chickpea Quinoa Chilli

This week feels like a chili kind of week. The temperature is getting a little cooler and I just feel like I need that comfort that a bowl of chili can provide you. This is a plant-based chili, which is packed with protein, fiber, iron, and manganese thanks to the chickpeas and quinoa. The quinoa makes it very hearty while also being gluten-free.

chilliIt is as easy and dumping everything into a slow cooker before heading off to work and then when you come home your house smells so good and dinner is made and ready for you (I love that feeling).

I was at a friends wedding once who held a chili competition, which I offered to participate in. I won and the secret ingredient..?? Chocolate. I always put a little chocolate in my chili! It adds a little something extra that you would never know it’s there but I can really tell the difference when I don’t add it.
