Indian Masala Chili
Nothing beats a hearty bowl of chili at the end of a long day. This chili differs from traditional veggie chili in that it features spices like turmeric, cumin, coriander, cardamom, and curry powder. It is also veggie protein-packed with kidney beans, chickpeas, and red lentils. Make this one on the weekend or for the start of your workweek.

Valeria T. ( 12mo ) – Love spinach. Made 3 ingredient spinach & oat crepes this morning for breakfast. I usually use freshly ground flaxseed as egg replacer. What would Swich recommend as egg replacer in crepes?
