My Lentil Three Bean Chili is the best Vegan Chili you’ve ever made. With just 6 gluten free ingredients this homemade chili is full of kidney beans, black beans, and pinto beans.



Basic Chili Recipe:

  • 1 14 oz can kidney beans
  • 1 14 oz can black beans
  • 1 14 oz can pinto beans
  • 3 Tbs red chili paste
  • 2 14 oz cans chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup lentils, uncooked
  • salt, pepper to taste

Optional add-ons:

  • roasted garlic
  • chopped onion
  • chopped bell pepper
  • lemon juice
  • cilantro
  • quinoa or rice


  1. Heat a large pot and add to your liking roasted garlic, onions, bell peppers. In any case add the chopped tomatoes, red chili paste, and lentils cook for 20 minutes (much longer and things will get mushy and overcooked).
  2. Add beans and heat for another 5 minutes, ready. Divide into bowls garnish with cilantro, serve optional with quinoa or rice.
