» Chilli non carne

You defnitely don't need 'carne' to make a great chilli. Try this served with rice and a generous dollop of vegan sour cream and guacamole, or use it to stuff tacos. Serves 3-4.

Ingredients

  • 4 oz (115g) green lentils
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 3 1/2 oz (100g) mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tin red kidney beans
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder, or more to taste
  • 2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 small tin of sweetcorn
  • Salt and pepper

Method

  1. Boil the lentils separately for 10 minutes and drain.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and fry the onions, carrots and garlic for a few minutes. Add the peppers and mushrooms to the pan.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients except the yeast extract, and enough water to cover. Simmer for about 30 minutes on a low heat, stirring occasionally. Add water if necessary. 
  4. Add yeast extract, salt and pepper to taste.
