Mega Vegetarian Chilli

Making big pots of vegetarian chilli  has always been my go to.   Chillis are great to do in big batches because the complex flavours mature so beautifully over time making them better with age.  Chillis are a great way to do a fridge clear out- really anything goes with this one and it's easily adapted to seasonal variation and personal preference of produce.  This recipe is packed with veggies and plant protein so of course it's a winner!
