Chilli sin Carne (Basic vegan chilli!)

Hello world! Thanks for your likes on the Garlic Bruschetta πŸ˜€ I thought I’d share with you a dish that I made as a main to accompany this starter. I made a vegan chilli for my family of 7, and it went down a storm. With the Garlic Bruschetta to start, and this Chilli as a main course. I also finished off the meal with strawberries dipped in dark vegan chocolate and they were delicious! So here is my very simple but yummy vegan Chilli “recipe” (it’s not so much a recipe, but a list of ingredients which are thrown into a pan and cooked!)


2 bell peppers, chopped

1 large onion, chopped

3 carrots, chopped

1 courgette, sliced OR 1 aubergine, chopped (could add both, in this case add more chopped tomatoes to prevent chilli being dry [seebelow])

1 can black beans

1 can red kidney beans

1 can white kidney beans


2-3 cans chopped tomatoes. (Add one can at start, then add more if chilli becomes dry)

2 tbsp Oregano

1 tbsp cumin

3 tbsp chilli powder

1 tbsp cayenne pepper

1 tbsp red jalapeΓ±os

Juice of 1 lime


1. Add the veggies to a hot pan with olive oil (carrots, onion, peppers, courgette, aubergine, garlic) and allow to cook for 4 or 5 minutes

2. Add EVERYTHING ELSE and allow to cook for 35-45 minutes, adding extra chopped tomatoes or water if it becomes dry (I ended up using 3 cans of chopped tomatoes in this recipe, so I might have had the pan a little too hot!).

3. Enjoy with rice (I used white rice- naughty I know but you can always use brown rice if you have a more willing audience than my meaty family!!) , and Garlic Bruschetta to start, and chocolate dipped strawberries to finish! Even the meat-lovers will love this one, they couldn’t even notice that this meal was missing meat, dairy and eggs as there are so many flavours.
