Lentil Chili

Ok so I took a slight break with summer holidays, but I am back on track for my awesome food followers.

Lentils, what are Lentils? in short they are seeds that grow in a pod. I love finding new ingredients to try out. Of course I have heard of Lentils, but I never actually cooked with them before. Here’s a nice vegetarian twist on the classic chili. It’s delicious, healthy and is a modification from the original WW recipe. Each serving of 1.5 cups is 5 weight watcher points.
