Plant Based Chili With Cheese

Dinner, Lunch, Vegan

My Plant Based Chili With Cheese is a delicious comfort food that is full of flavor.  I used some plant based meat, kidney beans, onions and peppers as some key ingredients.  My favorite nutritional yeast flakes helped to make this chili cheesy. This dish had an excellent southwest flavor to it!  It was served over quinoa.

I love to buy my fresh veggies from Whole Foods MarketWegmans and Sprouts Farmers Market.  If you’d like to see some great kitchen essentials, check out the ones I use on my Shop Page.
