Salt to taste at the end, as veggie crumbles tend to have a high sodium content, so the chili tends to be salty enough on its own. 

Feel free to omit the parsnips and double up on the sweet potatoes. 

Swap out any type of chili friendly bean in lieu of kidney beans. I have made with pinto, and great northern beans. 

Serve with shredded cheese, avocado & cilantro and a crumbly biscuit

I love how hearty this vegetarian chili is! I don’t miss the meat at all! So good!"
