Lentils are full of iron and peppers are full of Vitamin C. Given that Vitamin C helps the body absorb iron, you could call this a dish made in nutrition heaven. Full of protein, veggies, whole grains and even the all-time fave avocado, you just cannot go wrong with this simple lentil chili meal.
In a pot over medium-high heat, combine dried red lentils, water, fire-roasted tomatoes, frozen bell peppers and chili powder.
Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Simmer until lentils are soft and chili thickens (usually about 20 minutes).
As the chili cooks, toast the bread. Serve alongside chili and enjoy!
