Turkey and Kale Chili

Brr…here comes winter!

Which means cozy and delicious foods, like chili. I find that sometimes a classic chili dish can be a little heavy and can leave us feeling a little weighed down, so I wanted to make a dish that could be a little lighter and easier to eat for those of us who feel a little sluggish after a bowl ‘a chili. Hence, the (lighter) Turkey and Kale Chili!

In my chili recipes I love to include LOADS of vegetables to help boost nutrient content and to help promote satiety as well. I find that veggies like kale, broccoli and squash along with the classic chickpeas, onions, carrots and tomatoes make for a more varied and exciting chili bowl, and by adding some delicious herbs becomes a super satisfying and tasty meal.

Try making this delicious chili and feel free to add any of your favorite herbs/spices/or even meat varieties and veggies.  Enjoy!
