Vegan chili potato, anyone? Load up baked sweet potatoes with a zesty, easy-to-make chickpea chili and you’ve got a tasty weeknight meal that requires little prep or clean-up. Top your chili-stuffed sweet potatoes with diced fresh avocado for creaminess, and you’ll never miss the typical, not-so-healthy additions of sour cream and/or cheese. Or, whip up your own three-ingredient vegan Sour “Cream,” made with silken tofu, a splash of vinegar, and sea salt.

From The Vegan 8

Chickpea Chili–Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 4 to 5 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • ¾ cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¾ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (15-ounce) can reduced-sodium garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen corn
  • Chopped avocado (optional)
  • Bottled hot pepper sauce (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a shallow baking pan with parchment paper. Place sweet potatoes in prepared pan. Bake 40 to 60 minutes or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan combine onion, ½ cup water, the bell pepper, 1½ teaspoons chili powder, 1 teaspoon cumin, and salt. Bring to boiling. Cook 8 minutes or until nearly all of the water is evaporated, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add ½ cup water and the garlic; cook 2 minutes more. Stir in garbanzo beans, corn, and the remaining 1½ teaspoons chili powder and ½ teaspoon cumin. Cook and stir until slightly thickened.
  4. To serve, spoon chickpea mixture over sweet potatoes. If desired, top with avocado, hot pepper sauce, and/or additional chili powder.

Easy, and tastey! Nice switch up from our usual stuffed sweet potatoes which includes black beans and red peppers. We added avocado and salsa on top. Yum!
