Sweet Corn Vegan Chili

This sweet corn vegan chili is a delicious and easy slow cooker recipe.

Try this for your next vegan dinner!

When I was meal planning last week, I decided to make chili since we hadn’t eaten it in awhile. I’ve already done a vegetarian chili recipe, so I wanted to make a vegan chili as well!

This chili is sweet from the corn, with just a little heat to it. I topped mine with nutritional yeast and green onions. I love the cheesy flavor that nutritional yeast gives. It’s great in chili!

It was so good we ate our whole meal before realizing we forgot to put lime juice on it.

I plan to do that for leftovers. I love the fresh acidity of lime juice with chili!

The thing I love most about chili is that it’s minimal prep time then you let the slow cooker do all the work and you get to come home to a delicious hot meal waiting for you 🙂 Can’t wait to have this again!
