I do agree with the potency of chili on these cold winter nights in the Northeast the US. I especially like that one can forego grains and get substance from the sweet potatoes (which are actually less “sweet” than regular potatoes). When I was preparing for one of my shoulder surgeries, I eliminated grains to reduce inflammation. However, on balance, some wishing to reduce inflammation might reduce the nightshades—in this case, the tomatoes. One could make this even healthier by using dried beans and fresh tomatoes, to the extent these could be obtained in Northeastern winters.
In my opinion, Chili is an essential recipe during the winter.This hearty vegetarian chili includes sweet potato and black beans along with flavourful seasoning such as cumin, cinnamon and chili powder. This chili is bursting with flavour and is my favorite chili recipe at the moment. This chili is the perfect healthy weeknight meal. You can even make it and take it with you for lunch, I am sure you will make everyone jealous! I’ve also added a few optional topping ideas such as avocado and coriander.Eat the chili as it is, or serve it with brown rice or quinoa.
