sweet potato lentil chili

April 30, 2009

i’ve been meaning to make this chili recipe from eat, drink & be vegan for over a week now. i even had the veggies all prepped to throw in the pot, but with the warm weather, i just wasn’t in the mood to cook or eat it. well, the weather was much more chili/soup/stew friendly today, and with our windows open, the apartment was nice and cool and i didn’t mind standing in front of a hot stove.

i’m so glad i finally made this sweet potato and lentil chili, i really enjoyed it. thank god, because there are lots of leftovers. tom isn’t a fan of chili- vegan or not, but he said “i can see how you’d like this…it tastes good for having vegetables in it.” i’m taking that as a positive review. 🙂


i have to admit though that i didn’t follow any of the measurements…i didn’t leave anything out, and the only substitution i made was yellow lentils for red lentils…but i was too lazy to take out the measuring cups and spoons…so teaspoons became pinches and cups became handfuls…i have a feeling if i followed the recipe perfectly, this would have turned out even better.

i had my portion with some food should taste good tortilla chips and a sprinkling of cilantro.


another winner from dreena!

    That looks wonderful! I love making chili as it’s so great to throw in the freezer for lazy days.

    this looks real good with all the color. i like to add to vegan chilli recipes soy chips or tofu cubes.

    So ironic – I had the same recipe in mind for the weekend, but the temperature outside changed my mind. Yours looks great!

    Yum. The sweet potato is an unexpected twist. I’ll have to try this. This is a great summer chili – can’t wait for summer to get here to try this. 🙂 Thanks for sharing this great recipe.
