Healthy Mexican Quinoa Chili

I don’t eat chili too often because the heavy tomato base is too inflammatory for my body as I had several autoimmune diseases. I also am against using ANYTHING from a can, especially tomatoes as they contain heavy metals, BPAs and other toxins. Because of that, I make my own healthy and less inflammatory chili from organic fresh tomato, soaked black beans, organic corn (I like something sweet in my chili) and sprouted quinoa!

This recipe is AMAZING because it only requires 1 pot and takes literally 20 minutes to make from start to finish which makes it perfect for meal-prepping!
