Recipe: Vegan Lentil Chili

Amazingly meat free, I could have eaten bowl after bowl of this delicious vegan chili. Stuck in the slow cooker it made for a really quick and easy dinner!


  • 500g yellow lentils
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1L vegetable stock
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1tsp chilli powder (or more if you like, I used very strong chilli powder)
  • 2tsp cumin powder
  • 2tsp paprika
  • 1/2 cup chopped coriander


  1. Add the chopped onion and garlic to the slow cooker followed by the lentils.
  2. Add the chilli, paprika, cumin and bay leaf.
  3. Pour over the stock, beans and tomatoes then stir.
  4. Cook oh high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours.
  5. When ready stir in the corriander and serve with rice or over a baked potato.
