You Won't Know it's Vegan Chili

Eat like a Vegan - Tastes like a Carnivore

I don't consider myself a vegan. I did however get inspired by some leaders on my Arbonne team 

(who are vegan) after rooming with them for 4 nights in Las Vegas during our conference. 

That inspiration led to crockpot PROTEIN CHILI

Here is what you will need:
1 medium yellow or white onion diced
1 bell pepper diced
3-5 cloves of garlic mashed into worms thru one of those Pampered Chef tools.
Water or vegetable broth for sauteing 
4 scoops Arbonne Protein Boost (10 grams of protein per scoop, you can add more) 
1 Can diced or crushed tomatoes (Organic)
1 Can drained and rinsed red kidney beans
2 C Lentils. I used the sprouted lentil trio from Costco.
4 Cups Water
Daiya Cheese Shreds optional

Chili Seasoning: You can buy a gluten free version at the store, or mix this together.  

  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp (approximately) freshly ground pepper
  • *Adapted from
Before the protein boost is added
My Costco find

 1. Saute the onion, pepper and garlic until soft.  Don't over do it as they will cook more in the crock pot.

2. Load crockpot with Lentils, water, spices, tomatoes and beans

3. Add 4+ scoops of the protein boost powder. Don't worry, you can't taste it.  

Four scoops = 40 grams of vegan protein

 I was worried it was going to be milky and weird.

Look how amazing this turned out.  It's on repeat in the Hallberg home.  
I topped with Daiya cheese shreds
