Why this is the BEST Vegetarian Crockpot Chili

Crockpot chili is a STAPLE in my home in the fall and winter. It’s thick, it’s hearty, it’s flavorful, and OH so cozy on those chilly days. We’ve made healthy white chicken chili in the crockpot and cajun chili in the instant pot along with SO many other chili recipes here on the blog. Today, we’re going to cook up a healthy vegetarian chili crockpot recipe that is slow cooked to perfection, all thanks to the crockpot! It’s rich and tasty and is FULL of good-for-you ingredients that make the most delicious and satisfying meal.

How long to cook Crockpot Vegetarian Chili

This chili develops such a deep flavor and wonderful richness because it’s cooked in the crockpot slowly. To cook your chili on the high setting, it will take about 4 hours until it’s done. To cook your chili on the low setting, it will take more like 7-8 hours to be done.

Serving Suggestions

Depending on what you grew up with, you might have some strong preferences when it comes to side dishes for chili! Crushed taco chips, shredded cheese and sour cream are all absolutely delicious with this chili recipe. If you want to go more southern with this meal, consider baking up some vegan cornbread for an extra special side dish! This meal is all about comfort!

Chili Storage

Whether you made this chili for a weeknight meal for the family or you made a triple batch to freeze for easy grab and go meals, you will want to make sure you store it well so that it keeps until you’re ready to enjoy it. To store this chili in the fridge, simply scoop it into an airtight container. It will last in the fridge this way for about 3-4 days. If you want to extend the life of your chili, I recommend popping it in the freezer because it freezes and thaws really well and makes a great meal on a night when you don’t have time to cook something fresh! Simply scoop it into a freezer safe airtight container or a freezer style zip lock bag and label it with the date. Place it in the freezer and it should last up to 3 months this way!
