Lentil Chili over Savory Cornmeal Waffle

Submitted by: PRETTYGIRL112

Introduction

Not only is it ridiculously quick and easy, it’s pretty healthy! The lentil chili is vegan and all sorts of healthy and the waffles… well we all need a little bit of carb and fat in our life. You can even blend in some spinach or kale to sneak in some more vegetables.
Also great if you want to freeze the waffles for a quick snack or breakfast later.
Try it. You won’t regret it!
