Red Lentil Chili


Red Lentil Chili is a vegan chili that is absolutely delicious and such a comforting meal!

I enjoy eating Red Lentil Chili over Jasmine Rice and adding peas or corn as a topping.

This recipe is inspired by the excellent Red Lentil Chili recipe from High Carb Hannah; I highly recommend checking out her YouTube videos for excellent recipe ideas and vegan-eating inspiration!

Red Lentil Chili


I've made this recipe without the red bell pepper (by accident!) and the red bell pepper really adds a nice sweetness to the dish.

The red lentils need to cook for at least 20 minutes, but I like to cook the dish for 30 minutes to really have the flavors mix together.

List of Ingredients

Recipe Steps

  1. Finely dice up the onion and the red bell pepper into small pieces, so they are easy to sauté.
  2. Add the onions to a large, heavy-bottomed pan or Ditch oven with 2 Tablespoons of water and sauté for 5 minutes on medium heat.
  3. Add the diced bell pepper to the pot and sauté for an additional 3 minutes.
  4. Add all the remaining ingredients into the pot and mix well.
  5. Cover the pot and let simmer on medium-low heat for 30 minutes (to fully cook the red lentils).
  6. Serve over Jasmine Rice!
