  • Yield: 4 Servings
  • Preparation Time: 45 Minutes


  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small sweet onion (diced)
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes (cubed)
  • 1 (14-oz) block extra firm tofu (drained, cubed)
  • ½ green bell pepper
  • ½ red bell pepper
  • 1 can diced tomatoes with green chilis
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp cayenne
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup of parsley (optional, chopped)
How to Make It
  1. Heat the olive oil in a medium-sized pot over medium-high heat.
  2. Sauté the garlic and onions until softened, around 5 minutes.
  3. Now add the bell peppers and stir until everything is tender and fragrant, around 5 more minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to low, add all remaining ingredients except the optional parsley, and stir until everything is combined thoroughly.
  5. Cook the chili for 15-20 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are soft and the liquid has thickened. Make sure to stir often and add ½ cup more water if necessary; this will result in more soup-like consistency.
  6. Serve warm in a bowl, topped with the optional parsley if desired, and enjoy right away; or, store to enjoy later!
