A chunky veggie chili made with sprouted beans and fresh spices and herbs for optimal digestion. Hearty kidney beans, sun-dried tomatoes, carrots, celeriac, parsnip, onion, ginger, and garlic make up this warming comforting bowl of chili. If that’s not already enough flavor, you'll pack it with even more punch from chili powder, paprika, fennel, fenugreek, bay leaves, curry leaves, and a few other little goodies. It may be a long list of fresh ingredients, but when everything stews together, it’s heaven in a bowl and well worth the extra effort. When you get just the right texture and mix of spices, it’ll feel and taste meaty, even though there’s no meat.
