Spicy Vegan “pork” Chili Recipe!

Spicy Vegan Chili Recipe

I wanted to share a bonus winter recipe with all of you.

It’s snowing here in Ashland, and although I didn’t realize it was coming spirit had me get prepared last night by leading me to make my first pot of chili all winter!

The results were so good that I had to come on and share the recipe with you all in hopes that it helps to warm your belly and settle break up some Kapha this cold and snowy season!

While mushrooms can be considered tamasic in Ayurveda, the lion’s mane mushrooms in this chili are what create the “pork” consistency and they are oh so delicious! However, this recipe will be just as good if you decide to leave them out.

I used organic canned beans for this recipe, but feel free to soak fresh beans before adding them to your crock pot if you’d prefer.
