The Best Chili

Rating: 4.5 stars 12
This chili came about when we had an over-abundance of produce from our garden. Fresh tomatoes, carrots, peppers, and onions make for a delicious chili! Serve warm, topped with cheese, if desired.

Sunny Lentils

Rating: 4.5 stars 22
This is a wonderfully bright and healthy recipe that I created one day when I was looking to use up the rest of my red lentils and fell in love with this flavor combination. Brown lentils could probably also be used, but would require more cooking time and more water for simmering as the tiny red lentils cook much faster than brown. You can add your own spices to your taste preference. I think crushed pineapple would work well in this recipe for more of a tropical flavor.
