Vegetarian Chili

Vegetarian Lentil & Farro Chili! This easy vegetarian chili gets an added boost of nutrition from lentils, and a great texture from the addition of farro. The rich flavor and heartiness of this dish is exactly what you need this fall -- you may be surprised when you don't even miss the meat!

step 1

Heat olive oil in a pot or a pan with high sides over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until slightly softened.

step 2

Stir in tomato paste {it's ok if it's dry at this point}. Add garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt and cayenne and cook, stirring constantly, for about a minute. –

step 3

Stir in the diced tomatoes and kidney beans, scraping the bottom of the pan. Add the farro and stir to combine.

step 4

Pour in the beer & water, again scraping the bottom of the pan. Stir and bring to a boil. Cook for about 1 minute. Replace lid, reduce heat to low;  simmer for 10-12 minutes or until the farro is tender.

step 5

Remove the lid and gently stir in the cooked lentils. Simmer for another minute or two to heat them through.
