Vegan Quinoa & Sweet Potato Chili

This vegan chili is loaded with flavor and vitamins, and everyone in the family will ask for a second bowl. It’s easy to prepare, takes just over  a half hour to get on the table, and the best part?!?! There’s only one pot to clean!!

Vegan Quinoa & Sweet Potato Chili

makes 6 hearty bowls of chili

one 29 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
one 6 oz can tomato paste
32 oz vegetable stock
1 onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon oregano
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into bite sized chunks
1 cup dry quinoa
salt and pepper to taste
avocado, cilantro for garnish  (optional)

Heat the oil in a large heavy soup pot over medium low heat. Add onions, and cook until soft and they start to turn brown (about 10 minutes). Add the garlic, and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, and oregano and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the beans, stock, and potatoes, and season with salt and pepper . Cook for about 5 minutes, then add the quinoa. Continue cooking for about 15 minutes – 30 minutes, stirring frequently, until quinoa and potatoes are cooked and the chili has thickened. Add a bit of water if the chili becomes too thick for your liking. Top with avocado and chopped cilantro. Scrumptious!

Do you think this would freeze and/or reheat well? I am only cooking for one and would love to make it for lunches.

By milkfreemom - 31 July 2012 Reply

Hi Christina! This will keep for several days in the fridge, and if you portion it out and freeze it will keep for up to one month. Hope you like it as much as we do!

Thanks Again!

This is an amazing recipe, thank you for sharing!

I like things to bring a lot of heat, so only change I made was added two diced habeneros w/ seeds when I added the stock. You can remove seeds and it’ll be less heat.

By Ann - 31 July 2012 Reply

I made this last night. Only change was to use kidney as well as black beans. So yummy!

By milkfreemom - 1 August 2012 Reply

I love red kidney beans! Glad you liked it!

By Beth - 31 July 2012 Reply

This was excellent!!! I used half black and half cannelini because that’s what I had in the house. I also subbed the cumin for 2 tsp tumeric because I was out of cumin. Delish! Thanks for posting.

By Shelly - 1 August 2012 Reply

Actually…which kind of quinoa did you use? Have white and red in the kitchen. Does it make a difference?

By milkfreemom - 1 August 2012 Reply

Hi Shelly! I made it with white quinoa. Thanks for bringing that up, I should have noted it! I do have some red quinoa and will try it out next time. I’ll update the recipe with the results!

By Erin - 1 August 2012 Reply

I am making this now..looks so good but it is taking way longer than 15 minutes for the last part. DId anyone else have this issue. The quinoa isn’t cooking up and it’s still pretty watery.

By milkfreemom - 1 August 2012 Reply

Hi Erin! How did it come out? I haven’t had this issue before, but stovetops can vary in heating temps, etc. I hope You liked it!

By Beth - 1 August 2012 Reply

Mine also took longer than 15 minutes. My liquid was evaporating faster than my quinoa was cooking so I reduced the heat and covered it for a few minutes. It turned out great and tasted delicious the next day out of the microwave too!

By Shelly - 1 August 2012 Reply

I ended up using red quinoa and it still turned out great! Eating the leftovers now for lunch! Thanks so much!

By Traci - 5 August 2012 Reply

Do you know the nutritional facts for this? It looks so good but I want to make sure it will fit in my allotted calorie intake

By milkfreemom - 6 August 2012 Reply

Hi Traci! I don’t know the exact calorie count, but I estimate it’s around 350 calories per 1 1/2 cup serving. That’s not including avocado. The good news is it’s nutritious and good for you, so you won’t be consuming empty calories!

By Kendra - 12 December 2013 Reply

Hi 🙂 Just wondering if you mean one 1/2 cup serving, or a 1+ 1/2 cup serving. Made this last night can’t wait to give it a try today for lunch 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

By milkfreemom - 14 December 2013 Reply

Hi Kendra, the serving size is 1.5 cups. Hope you liked it!

By Brock - 5 August 2012 Reply

I made it with red quinoa, seemed to take a bit longer. I also added in jalapeno for some added heat!

By milkfreemom - 6 August 2012 Reply

Great idea with the jalapeno, Brock! Thanks for the tip!

I just had this for dinner. I was SO delicious! I added some kale that I had from the garden and also topped it with some fresh corn, cut off the cob. Definitely making this many more times! It also took a little more than 15 minutes to cook the quinoa fully (maybe 8 minutes or so, I didn’t time the last few minutes) but turned out wonderfully.

By Amy Thoennes - 15 August 2012 Reply

This sounds really good! However, I don’t have sweet potatoes…any ideas of a substitution?

By Naomi - 1 March 2013 Reply

I substituted sweet potatoes (husband is allergic) for buttercup squash. We LOVED it! Great recipe 🙂

How many people do you think it serves?

By milkfreemom - 16 August 2012 Reply

If I remember correctly, this makes about 6 hearty sized bowls. Next time I do make it I’ll update the recipe! Hope you like it!

By Kristen - 16 August 2012 Reply

I’m hoping to make this for dinner tonight! Any chance you think this could be crock-potted?

By milkfreemom - 16 August 2012 Reply

I think it could be cooked in the crockpot if you add the quinoa during the last hour of cooking. Let me know if you try it and how it comes out!

By Cindy - 16 August 2012 Reply

I made this last night. Yum! I have a 7-yr-old and a 5-yr-old and they BOTH asked for seconds! The onion I used was on the larger size so I caramelized it with a little honey to increase the odds of the kids eating the chili ; ) Thank you!!

Yummy! I have been kinda obsessed with the black bean sweet potato combo lately, usually in taco form. This was a delicious alternative to my usual!

By Emilly - 20 August 2012 Reply

Absolutely DEE-LISH-US! Brilliant idea. I will say this, it did take longer than 15 min to cook. More like…30 min but trust me, I’m not complaining. My fiance went back for seconds. There was left-overs…for 1 person. SMH!

By Jane - 26 August 2012 Reply

I made this with some leftover baked sweet potatoes – I just cooked everything else and added the sweet potatoes at the end.
I don’t know how well a dish like this would freeze – I often make soups with chunks of sweet potato and they turn mushy after being frozen. Luckily this recipe was so delish, it is doubtful there will be leftovers!

I just made this recipe and it’s AMAZING! A few things though… I used 2 sweet potatoes instead of one. And I had to add more chili powder, cumin and a dash of red pepper flakes to kick up the heat! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

I don’t have tomato paste, but I have sauce. Do you think that will work??

By milkfreemom - 7 September 2012 Reply

Hi Renee, That may work if it doesn’t have italian seasoning in the sauce. The texture will be thinner also, so you may want to reduce your water a bit. Hope you like it!

Do you increase the heat ever? I think if I left the chili on med-low the entire time it would take forever to cook. Maybe that’s why it’s taking others so long? Thanks! Love this recipe.

Sounds like such a delicious idea! My only question is, this might be obvious to everyone else but do you use 1 cup cooked quinoa or uncooked? I couldn’t tell…

Can you make this in a slow cooker? Any adjustments need to be made?

By milkfreemom - 3 October 2012 Reply

Hi Kara, I haven’t tried this in the slow cooker yet, but I’m sure it could be done. I think cooking it on low would work, and the only issue I can see would be overcooking the quinoa (it might be mushy). I plan on testing this in the slow cooker very soon and updating the recipe. Let me know how you like it!

Just made this! Came out great, and it’s awesome for a nice cold fall day. Took a little bit longer to cook the sweet potatoes all the way through, might boil them up before hand next time and add them in. I also added cayenne pepper and some cinnamon which was a great touch. Thanks for this recipe!

I made this last night and it turned out amazing! I substituted black beans for vegan meat-free imitation ground beef and also used two sweet potatoes instead of one! I added about 2 cups of water to account for this. Thank you so much for sharing! Leftovers today for lunch 🙂

By Hillary - 10 October 2012 Reply

I absolutely love this dish! So easy to prepare, and no obscure ingredients…love it! I’m not vegan but I am always looking for healthy recipes, and with chili, that’s really hard to find. I did think it was lacking a bit of flavor though so I’ll probably add a little jalepeno in with the onion and maybe some red or orange bell pepper. Also, I did my own nutritional breakdown and I am coming way under that 324 calorie count mark…I like my numbers best (: Definitely making this again!!

We made this in the crock pot last night and it was awesome! I browned the onions first then added all ingredients in crock except for the quinoa. Cook on high for 3 hrs, add quinoa, cook on high for additional hour. Like many other we added chili flakes for more heat.

By Jennifer - 12 October 2012 Reply

This looks really good and I’m planning to cook it for the first time this week! Just a quick question, though: When you say sweet potato, do you mean a yellow sweet potato or the more orange-hued yams that people often refer to as sweet potatoes? I have found that recipes don’t always differentiate between the two, and they do have pretty distinct flavors and textures, so I’d love to know which one you used. From the picture it looks like maybe it was a yam? Thanks in advance for pointing me in the right direction 🙂

By milkfreemom - 12 October 2012 Reply

Hi Jennifer, I used a dark skinned sweet potato. I hope you like the chili!

I made this for the first time last night. This will be a staple in our house. Thanks everyone for the different variations. Someone asked about substituting potatoes. I only had one small sweet potato, so I added a peeled red potato. It was just fine. We also didn’t have vegetable broth, so I substituted mushroom broth and it was good. If anyone is cooking for someone with IBS, just leave out the beans. It works great. Thank you Milk Free Mom for such an easy and nutritious recipe.

I made this and it turned out pretty great and was easy although it takes more like an hour to prep and cook. I added red pepper and may try adding corn, more garlic, and a jalapeño.

Absolutely amazing dish – made this my first week as a vegan, and it hit the spot, perfectly. Next time I might up the beans (because I love them!) – I also added extra chili powder, and quite possibly some other spices that were within reach, and used Tofutti “sour cream” – amazingly good. Will definitely make again, and again.

I have cooked my fair share of recipes from blogs and not once have I ever left a comment. I HAVE TO COMMENT. This chili is amazing. I am just vegetarian but I try to eat vegan as much as I can handle (but I love ice cream ah!). I think I’ve made this every week for a month. I can’t keep it in the fridge longer than a day. Between myself, my roommate, my boyfriend, and my parents, we buy all these ingredients and stockpile so we can make more chili. You are truly a genius. This fulfills my craving for tacos, which I haven’t had since becoming vegetarian (can never find a recipe that just gets it right). Sometimes I put this in a tortilla with melted Monterey Jack cheese (trust me, it compliments the chili PERFECTLY) along with avocado and its just heaven. You have done me such a favor. This is so simple and so delicious. A thousand times, thanks!!!

This might sound strange but I added some raisins to the recipe. My mum used to make an Indian dish with raisins and the combination of the spicy and sweet was really good. My risk worked out, I only added a couple of tablespoons of raisins but they were perfect. I think I would add a few more next time.

I made this for my “I only eat” boyfriend which was informed by his doctor to cut down on his protein intake.

I fell in love with the recipe at first bite. He tasted it. Then tasted it again, put his bowl down and declared, “It’s a winner!” He asked for seconds, and asked if there was enough for tomorrow’s lunch.

I’m on Weight Watchers and it’s very point friendly. 1 cup was more than filling.

Thanks!
Cristina

My husband raves about this and begs me to make it. I usually use chicken broth because it’s what I have on hand and it tastes great.
