Comforting Plant-Based Quinoa Chili

There is nothing like a fresh bowl of chili on a fall or winter day to warm you up! This recipe is completely vegan and is a great source of healthy protein and carbohydrates. Add a little avocado at the end and you also have yourself some healthy fats. 

I also designed this recipe for people who work or go to school all day. All you have to do is put the ingredients into a crockpot and when you get home, there will be a nice warm and comforting meal waiting for you.
