Chunky Veggie Chili
A quick and easy chili - beans, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, onion, zucchini, squash, bell pepper, lots of spices, and quinoa. I like to soak dried beans and cooked them in my tiny crockpot. I had the veggies sitting on the counter for a little too long, so chili was an efficient way to use them all before they spoiled. I keep the basic chili spices on hand - chile pepper, cayenne pepper, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder - and I love to sprinkle on nutritional yeast for an extra boost of flavor. I buy my quinoa in bulk at Costco, but this time it was red quinoa instead of white quinoa. It's a nice change.
