Slow Cooker Chili with Lentils, Corn, Black Beans, and Okra [Vegan & Oil-Free]

Slow Cooker Chili with Lentils, Corn, Black Beans, and Okra [Vegan & Oil-Free]

Who doesn’t love a bowl of chili? Whether it’s December or June, this is a staple in our household every Sunday. Through the years, I’ve modified and perfected this chili – especially transitioning into Veganism and also making sure it’s satisfying for my carnivore husband.

There is a secret (well not so secret because it’s in the title) ingredient in this chili…. OKRA! Eww, gross, right? Wrong! I know okra is a polarizing vegetable, but I’ve noticed that it adds the perfect amount of thickness and flavor to the chili. Now I can’t believe I ever made it without okra.

I like to top my chili with nutritional yeast and avocado. But vegan sour cream, onions, or tomatoes are great on this, as well!
