Sweet Potato Chili With Quinoa (Vegan)

December 5, 2012

 Here in Switzerland the weather is getting colder and colder. Now is the time to snuggle up on the couch with a bowl of comfort food. If you feel the same, I have the perfect recipe for you! Inspired by this recipe of Milk Free Mom I made my own adapted version and everybody loves it. I already cooked it many times and always add different veggies. It’s perfect for free-styling ; )

It’s a must-try!
