Sasha’s Stovetop Vegetarian Chili


Anyone can feel at home on the range with this easy chili! Super satisfying on a snowy winter night.


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 5 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno chile, chopped
  • 1 can (28 oz) whole tomatoes (diced or plum works too)
  • 1/2 pound green beans or broccoli (fresh or frozen)
  • 3 large sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cans (15 oz each) beans (any kind), rinsed and drained


  • In 5-6 quart pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, stirring occasionally, for about 10 mins, until tender.
  • Add chili powder, cumin, coriander, garlic, and jalapeno. Cook 1 more minute.
  • Add tomatoes and their juice, green beans (or broccoli), sweet potatoes, sugar, salt, and water.
  • Heat to boiling over medium heat. Reduce to low, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 25 mins or until sweet potatoes are tender.
  • Stir in beans and cook 2 mins longer.

Great served with plain greek yogurt and sliced avocado!
