High Protein Black Bean & Kamut Chilli

Another day another high protein, healthy plant-based recipe that’s perfect as a post-workout meal.

Introducing my High Protein Black Bean and Kamut Chilli 🙌🏽

Kamut, or Khorasan wheat is a Middle-Eastern wheat grain known for its rich nutty flavour and high protein content. Combine this with black beans and you’ve the got the base for a healthy plant-based dish full of protein to feed your muscles after a hard workout.

High Protein Vegan Black Bean and Kamut Chilli

Thanks mainly to the kamut and black bean combination, this chilli dish will provide about 39g of protein per serving. That’s massive! If you are interested in reading more about plant based proteins and how much you should be eating check out my article on where vegans get their protein.

This black bean and kamut chilli is 100% vegan and ridiculously easy to make. Even with all the fresh ingredients going into it, you can still have it on your plate and ready to eat in 30 minutes. That’s exactly what your body needs after a good workout.

I hope you enjoy this chilli. I have one more high protein post-workout meal to share with you guys later this week so keep it locked!
