Vegan Slow Cooker Quinoa Chili (Gluten Free)

Vegan Slow Cooker Quinoa Chili.  It’s been raining on and off for a week here in Dallas.  So weather like this makes me want to make soup or chili.  So I made some chili for you!

This healthy chili is vegan and gluten free! It also happens to be oil free.

You can make the whole thing in the slow cooker while you are not even home.  I love no fuss meals like that.



If anyone wants to make this in the instant pot and report cooking time and directions back, I’d love to hear it.  This recipe makes a lot and freezes well so it’s great for those on a budget and those that are meal planers.
