A Very Simple Vegan Chilli Recipe

Soya mince based chilli 🌶 rice, tortilla chips, olive and jalapeño sourdough, courgette ribbons.

A very simple and very good vegan chilli recipe.

Method and Ingredients

  • Fry off some finely chopped onion and garlic and add a selection of roughly chopped – chunky – vegetables. We used: courgettes; red, green and yellow peppers and celery.  Mushrooms would be great too.
  • Add chilli of choice, either finely chopped fresh chillis, dried chilli or a chilli powder mix, or maybe a mixture of these.
  • Stir well.
  • Bung in a box of passata or chopped tomatoes and add a little water to the mix.
  • Bring to boil and turn down to simmer.
  • Once veg is tender add a tin or two of cooked red kidney beans and salt to taste.
  • Nice served with rice, a baked potato or quinoa or, if you’re feeling a bit trashy, chips.
  • Cucumber is a good cooling accompaniment. Other optional additions: a teaspoon of sugar stirred into the sauce really brings out the flavours in a different, sweet, way; a few squares of dark chocolate melted through it turn the dish into a darker, richer mole.
  • Pictured above is a soya mince based chilli, below a vegetable one.

Don’t eat  when you’ve been talked into watching a scary fast moving zombie film that will make you consume the hot chilli far too fast and overheat in a bad way.

  1. We’re chilli lovers in this house, too. I add molasses to the mix, which is nice. Sometimes I wrap chilli in puff pastry and some other times we have it in wraps.

    Chuckling (rather cruelly – sorry!) at the thought of you inhaling chilli while watching a zombie movie. The colour of the food can’t have helped, either!!!

  2. Mmm, your recipe sounds wonderful. I enjoy cooking vegan recipes from time to time, as it makes me feel so healthy. Love your last picture, what a unique angle capturing the forest floor!
