Great Groceries: Lentil Chili

Lentil Chili

2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
4 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 (16 oz.) bag brown lentils
2 (14.5 oz.) cans diced tomatoes
1 bay leaf
2 (32 oz.) cartons vegetable stock or chicken stock
1/2 tsp. salt 
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup chopped parsley
Cheddar cheese, tortilla chips and avocado for serving


In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and red bell pepper; sauté vegetables for 8 minutes or until soft and lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Stir in garlic, chili powder and cayenne pepper and cook for 1 minute. Add lentils, tomatoes, bay leaf and stock. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, lower heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered for 30 minutes or until lentils are tender. Remove from heat and discard bay leaf.

Transfer 3 cups of cooked chili into a food processor and process until pureed; add pureed chili back into the remaining chili and stir to combine. Stir in parsley and serve with desired toppings.
