Quinoa Chili

Quinoa Finds a New Home in This Protein-Rich Veggie Chilli

When it comes to comfort food, chilli is at the top of my list. Hot, hearty, and full of spice, I've always loved this classic stew, and I love the leftovers even more. I've been hard-pressed to find a meat-free chilli that satisfies my cravings . . . until I came up with this combination.

Butternut squash, kidney beans, and quinoa lay the base for this hearty vegetarian recipe that offers more than 20 grams of protein and 60 percent of your daily recommended fibre in one spicy bowl. The best part? It doesn't have to cook all day. In just one hour, dinner will be ready on the table, and it's absolutely delicious.

Notes

I garnished my soup with a dollop of Greek yoghurt and spring onions, but any traditional chilli toppings will work.
