A warming, hearty chili. 4 servings.
Chili isn't normally a summer food, but they do make a great staple and are on constant rotation in my house. Great way to get a good dose of veggies and protein.

1/2 a sweet potato
Pack of mushrooms
1 cup chickpeas (canned/boiled)
1 cup cauliflower florets

Add in can of tomatoes, and chickpeas. Allow to simmer on medium to low heat for 15-20 minutes.
