Chilli is the ultimate warming meal in the winter months (and we all know they are creeping in fast) and this – another one-pot wonder – caters to all dietary requirements. It also stores well in the fridge or freezer so is ideal for making in bulk. Meal prepping is key ladies!
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 large red onion, diced
3 large garlic cloves, minced
2 large celery sticks, very finely chopped
1 large red pepper, seeded and diced
2 x 400g tins of chopped tomatoes
250ml vegetable stock
4 tbsp tomato puree
400g tin of black beans, drained and rinsed
400g tin of kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 tbsp mild chilli powder
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
pinch of cayenne pepper
salt and black pepper
salad or rice, to serve
- Heat the oil in frying pan over a medium-high heat, add the onions and garlic and saute until softened. Add chillies, celery and pepper and saute for a further 5 minutes, then stir in the chopped tomatoes, stock and tomato puree.
- Add all the beans, along with the spices (except the cayenne, if using), and simmer for 10-15 minutes until thickened. Taste and if you want it spicier stir in the cayenne and continue to cook for a further 1-2 minutes.
- Remove from the heat, season to taste, and serve with salad or some rice.
