    Vegan Chili with Guacamole and Salsa

    Vegan Chili with Guacamole and Salsa can be just as tasty and nutritious as its meaty counterpart: rich, earthy spices, delicate sweet potatoes and creamy beans, finished with guacamole and salsa, create a wonderfully balanced meal.


    Ingredients
    3
    teaspoons
    coconut oil
    4
    cups
    sweet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 3/4 inch cubes
    1
    teaspoon
    ground cumin
    1
    teaspoon
    mild chili powder
    1
    teaspoon
    smoked paprika
    1
    onion, finely chopped
    2
    garlic cloves, crushed
    1
    green pepper, chopped
    4
    cups
    canned chopped tomatoes
    1
    tablespoon
    tomato puree
    2
    cups
    kidney beans
    2
    cups
    black beans
    *
    Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    *
    guacamole, to serve
    *
    salsa, to serve
    Directions
    Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Tip in the sweet potato chunks and fry for 4-5 minutes, until nicely golden on all sides. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.
    Reduce the heat slightly and add the remaining oil. Once melted, add the spices. Fry for 1-2 minutes, until aromatic.
    Reduce the heat again, add the onion and fry very gently, stirring from time to time, for 5-6 minutes, until softened. Stir in the garlic and green pepper and continue to fry for a further 2-3 minutes, until the pepper has taken on a little color and the garlic has softened.
    Add the chopped tomatoes and purée, tip the sweet potato back into the pan, turn the heat up a little and simmer for 6-8 minutes, until the mixture has slightly reduced and thickened. Drain and rinse the kidney and black beans, add to the pan and simmer for a further 5 minutes, seasoning to taste. By now, the mixture should be fairly thick and the sweet potato tender. Serve with guacamole and salsa.
