Recipe Thursday: Vegan Black Bean & Quinoa Chili (Crockpot)
Two of my favorite things about the fall are crockpots and chili! I LOVE chili, especially during football season! This weeks recipe Thursday came from Jessica in the Kitchen who brought us a delicious black bean and quinoa crockpot chili. Go check out her page, she has a ton of great recipes! This took about 10 minutes to prepare and 3 hours to cook! I give it two BIG thumbs up, and I will definitely be making it again.
