Butternut Squash & Farro Chili


I LOVE CHILI! Who doesn’t right? This week i made a vegetarian Butternut Squash & Farro chili that is seriously delicious. And filling!

It’s very gut-friendly because of all the added fiber in it! Plus, the garlic & onion act as prebiotics aka food for your good gut bacteria. All the veggies, chickpeas and farro give you added fiber to 1) keep you feeling full and 2) keep things “moving” !

My secret ingredient for all chili is adding a jar or salsa. I found a recipe using that years ago and have continued it ever since!
