Beans vs. Lentils: A Simple Swap with Surprising Benefits
What really sets this chili apart is the clever use of lentils instead of beans. Not only are lentils a budget-friendly option, but they also cook in record time (under 30 minutes). And it’s not just about convenience— both lentils and sprouted bread are low on antinutrients like phytates. So, say goodbye to the bloating and discomfort that sometimes accompanies beans and hello to a fantastic boost of micronutrients with every bite.
And hey, we get it—time is precious, especially on your busiest weeknights. So, here’s a pro tip to make things even faster: double or triple tonight’s batch. Freeze it in one-meal portions, and whenever you’re in need of a quick and wholesome meal, simply defrost and reheat. Voilà! In less than 15 minutes, you’ll have another satisfying plant-based dinner ready to enjoy.
So, whether you’re hosting a backyard BBQ or simply looking to indulge in a nutritious meal, Pin this recipe to your must-make Pinterest board so it’s ready when you are!
