Lentils are a little-known superhero when it comes to building nutritious meals. With more iron and (on average) more protein than beans, lentils are a great swap. This lentil chili is also easily modified to be vegan and vegetarian!
Try adding black beans (or your favorite bean) to boost protein and fiber
