Love the flavor!! You can throw anything in to make it more substantial. I am going to try to add some meat to it and kidney beans.

Good not great. Would be better with carrots, celery maybe more onions. It seems like it’s missing something including spice.

Not a fan. It was pretty tasteless to me, but I’m just starting to eat healthy so I’m used to lots of sugar and dairy

I’ll start by saying that I love meat, a lot. With that said, I go vegan for lent (all days, not just Fridays) and this is by far my favorite meal when I’m feeling constricted by the diet or unfulfilled in some way. It’s filling, tasty, and dank.

It was kind of bland. I added my own seasonings, but if I were to make this again, I'd recommend using a LOT more seasonings.

Filling but a little too bland to be called Chili.

Absolutely delicious. A little spicy for kids, but fantastic flavor. Added a head of kale to the recipe for a little extra veggie.

Awesome recipe! Meat eating boyfriend went back for seconds and thirds. Used dry lentils and put them in the pressure cooker, only used one box of vegetable broth. Could use some extra veggies, whatever veggies float your boat.

Great recipe. simple and easy as I'm one month into my journey of a plant base eating lifestyle. This site had shown me I can still enjoy good food while not eating meat. Thanks to a dear friend for recommending the site to me.

It’s good if you add spices to it. We ate it with rice. I added some 7 spice, cumin, cinnamon, coriander, cardamon, nutmeg. I liked it without bell peppers.

I added celery and carrots but followed the recipe otherwise. Mine was a little too soupy so I just cooked to longer and it was perfect!

Doubled the chili powder, added salt and pepper, topped with cheese and sour cream. Still not meat but... not bad.

Needed to add pepper and some rosemary (I'm not a cilantro fan). Definitely good for a vegan chili but it could use another veggie or two to be perfect

Really good! I made 4 servings instead of 8. I used a different type of lentils but it still turned out okay.

I used this as a starting point since I had a ham bone I had to use and no split peas. I used half broth and half water, no chili powder, and no cilantro, and added the ham bone (leftover from some holiday - still had a little ham on it). I kept everything else the same. It was easy and everyone had thirds! Really good!
