Servings: 6


1 tablespoon olive oil

3 cloves of garlic minced
½ cup dry red wine, optional
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 16 oz can diced tomatoes blended
1 16 oz can diced tomatoes not blended
2 cups water or vegetable broth
1 cup yellow lentils or any variety you prefer

Tip: The red wine is optional in this Gluten-Free Chili, but it adds a rich depth of flavor. If you omit, replace vegetable stock.


  1. Heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and spices. Saute until onion is softened.

  5. Season with salt and pepper as needed.
  6. Alternatively--you can place all ingredients into the slow cooker and cook for 6 hours on low or 4 hours on high.
