Vegan Recipe: Spicy Bean Chili

When it comes to cooking, I love to spend hours in the kitchen, experimenting with different ingredients and finding new ways to present common dishes. However, I realize this is not everyone's passion. When I come up with a recipe that's easy, delicious and healthy, it quickly becomes a go-to recipe for those days I'm busy, tired or just don't feel like cooking.

I love this recipe because you can make a large batch; it's even better the next day. You can even freeze this and have it ready to go whenever you need it.
