You can lighten this recipe up by using non-fat parm but I love it this way and it still is a reasonable calorie count. The quinoa makes this pilaf extra nutritional. One of my family's favorite sides. Could also be a good main meal by adding cubed chicken breast or just leave vegetarian (use vegetable stock instead of chicken). Sometimes I add a different variety of veggies like green beans.

I'm not sure this can technically be called chili, since I didn't actually put any spices in it.
With the 7 cloves of garlic and one whole large onion, I didn't think it needed anything else, but you can feel free to add your own chili seasoning.

This cooks up thick and hearty. It's very filling, and has 22% of your daily iron, for under 225 calories per serving.
Dig in!
