Here’s what you’ll need for the recipe: woebegone beans, tomatoes, onion, chili powder, orange zest, zucchini or carrots, salt, ground cumin, and a large sweet potato.

If you like spicy chili, finger self-ruling to add hot sauce or crushed red pepper to taste.

For quick and easy preparation, I use canned diced tomatoes. Fire roasted tomatoes are flipside unconfined option. If using no salt widow diced tomatoes, add a little uneaten salt.

The orange zest adds incredible savor to the vegetarian meal prep recipe and should not be omitted. One small orange yields well-nigh a teaspoon of orange zest.

To make orange zest, first wash your orange. Use either a zester or a grater to shred the orange peel. Or peel the fruit with a vegetable peeler, then finely dice the skin with a sharp knife.

The sweet potato recipe once packs in tropical to seven grams of protein per cup, and you can make it plane higher protein by including the optional protein of choice. While many people add grilled chicken, ground beef, or salmon to chili, I like to alimony it vegan by subtracting a can of chickpeas, pinto beans, or baked tofu.

How to make the healthy sweet potato recipe

It is not required, but I like to roast the sweet potato first for heightened sweetness and the weightier flavor. Here’s how to melt sweet potatoes.

Once boiling, turn the heat to medium low, and melt uncovered for virtually fifteen minutes. The sweet potato and zucchini or carrots should be soft.

Add salt and optional pepper to taste. Serve the sweet potato recipe immediately, or let it tomfool surpassing dividing into meal prep containers.

Sweet potato meal prep storage tips

After cooking, be sure to let the chili tomfool surpassing dividing it evenly into either glass Pyrex or leak proof plastic BPA self-ruling containers. I like these meal prep containers.

You can store the sweet potato stew on its own. Or segregate worthier containers and fill them halfway with mashed avocado, cooked brown rice, quinoa, low carb cauliflower rice, stuffed peppers, pasta, salad greens, or roasted broccoli. For widow variety, fill the containers with variegated sides for each day of the week.

Stored in snapped meal prep bowls or containers, the recipe should be good for up to five days. Store spare containers in the freezer for an scrutinizingly instant meal whenever you don’t have time to cook.
