Mushroom and bean vegan appetizer

Chili Garlic Mushroom & Bean | Vegan Friendly

This chili garlic mushroom & bean bowl made with mushrooms, beans, chili, garlic and spices is the ultimate comfort food. If you are looking to make something special for dinner; this chili bowl serves as an excellent side dish, in these taco salad bowls, or as stuffing to your vegan turkey; the possibilities are endless. I use it as stuffing in my vegan turkey recipe or in my taco salad bowls but I would highly recommend making more of it to enjoy with some garlic crusted bread😋😋
