If you show up to work with a container of this lentil, sweet potato, and kale chili — and bring along some kabocha squash biscuits to accompany it — don't be surprised if your fellow officemates crowd around your desk and stare longingly at it.
This meal is both vegan and gluten-free, but don't let the lack of meat or dairy fool you — it's quite hearty and filling. Between the warm, veggie-packed lentil chili and the chickpea flour-based biscuits, you certainly won't be heading for the office vending machine 20 minutes after you finish lunch.
The chili packs up and reheats beautifully at the office. All you need is a biscuit to sop it up with and a quiet room to enjoy it in — away from drooling coworkers.
