Veggie chilli

This is a great winter warmer! Super easy – super quick – and full of lots of plant based goodness! You can make a huge batch and take some in for lunch the next day.

The beauty of a chilli is the different variations you can do. Add kidney beans, quinoa, chickpeas, different spices! You can serve it with a jacket potato, roasted veg, rice or cauliflower rice! If you are missing the texture of meat, then a great addition is Quorn –

1 Teaspoon Cayenne pepper

1 Teaspoon ground cumin

Oliver Oil


1 red pepper, 1 yellow pepper

2 cloves of garlic

1 fresh red chilli
