I love food. It just makes me happy. If you’re a fellow food-lover, then you’ve made it to the right place. Welcome to My Food Crush of The Month, a place where I share with you a recipe that I’ve fallen in love with recently. All opinions here are my own, and these posts are not affiliated or sponsored.
Let me tell you, folks, this one’s a goodie!
If you’ve been on the lookout for a new, mouth-wateringly delicious, vegetarian dish, then I’ve got the perfect recommendation for you. Let me cut to the chase. You all must try this Vegetarian Sweet Potato Chili recipe from COOKIE+kate. I promise it will not disappoint!
Here are a few reasons why I absolutely love this chili:
# 1 – Sweet Potato? Who knew!
I’ve never had a sweet potato chili before, and I was worried it would add a bit too much sweetness. I was wrong. The flavours in this work perfectly – the heat wonderfully balances the sweet.
This is also a great recipe for those who aren’t super fans of sweet potato. You get all the health benefits of this nutritious vegetable, without having to really taste it.
# 2 – Healthy without sacrificing flavour
Let’s face it, sometimes healthier or vegetarian dishes taste bland. We know it can already be challenging to stick to healthier eating options, but when you’re also not enjoying the food, well, that makes choosing these options darn near impossible! You don’t have to worry about that with this recipe – this one’s jam-packed with flavour!
# 3 – The perfect amount of heat
If you like your food with a kick, then this recipe will be sure to please. Do you prefer less heat? Reduce the cayenne. More heat? Increase the cayenne. It couldn’t be easier to make this chili fit perfectly with your taste. Which brings me to my next point…
# 4 – Easily adaptable
I love recipes you can make your own. You know, the ones that lay down the groundwork and then you’re off to make it all you. This one’s just that. You can easily substitute an ingredient with one you’ve got on hand and still make this work. Hooray for stress-free cooking!
Not to mention, it’s really difficult to mess this chili up, so it’s a perfect choice for someone who may just be starting out in the kitchen.

# 5 – Easy clean-up
You’re throwing all your ingredients into ONE pot – need I say more?
# 6 – Can feed an army
Got a group of mouths to feed? This chili’s a great choice. You’ll be left with a big pot of deliciousness – a healthy, budget-friendly, easily prepared, pot of deliciousness! If that doesn’t sound like the perfect option to feed a crowd, then I don’t know what does!
# 7 – Meat-lovers approved
Got that meat-lover in your life that you haven’t been able to convince vegetarian food actually tastes great? Well, you can take my word for it, this chili passes the test, time and time again. I’ve had nothing but compliments for this chili from the non-vegetarians in my life. They don’t miss the meat in this.
# 8 – Great as leftovers
Left with extras? Not to worry, this chili makes for great leftovers as well. A warm bowl of this for dinner the next day is just as enjoyable as the day you made it. And who doesn’t like a night off of cooking dinner once in a while!
The next time you’re in the mood for some chili, give this recipe a try. It may just turn out to be your food crush of the month as well! Head on over to COOKIE+kate to grab the recipe for this yumminess (and countless other incredible recipes by the way!).
