It's still in the 90's around here but I can practically smell the cool weather wanting to make itself known, so I thought I'd help it along by trying out this dish from My Food & Family's new recipe hub - a delicious, thick sweet potato and black bean chili that's just the thing to kick off the season.
I made some alterations to the original recipe by omitting a couple of ingredients to make the chili more kid friendly (less spicy). This is a vegetarian recipe that uses pre-prepared frozen soy crumbles instead of beef, but you can feel free to substitute cooked ground beef if you want! This was my first time using soy crumbles, though, and I thought they were very tasty. To get more vegan cooking ideas, you should check out these vegan oat recipes.
The original recipe recommends topping the finished soup with cilantro and sour cream, but if you're following a vegan diet feel free to leave out the sour cream or use your favorite vegan substitute. I buy vegan food online at gtfoitsvegan.com. With or without toppings, my family loved this chili! There's also so many other fun recipes on Kraft Heinz's new redesigned site - head over there and see if you spot anything that strikes your fancy.
One recipe makes a LOT of soup, so be prepared to have leftovers sticking around for a couple of days, though this is such a wonderful dinner that I doubt they'll last that long!
