How to make Easy Veg Chilli
In a large saucepan heat the olive oil, add the chopped onion, peppers, courgette, carrot, celery and salt. Stir to combine and cook for 7 – 10 minutes until onion is soft.
Add the garlic, chilli powder, paprika, cumin and oregano. Cook for a further minute.
Add the tinned tomatoes, beans and vegetable stock. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 30 – 40 minutes (adding more stock if too thick).
Note: Wholegrain rice is more flavoursome and contains more fibre and protein that its white counterpart. Why not give it a try?
To Serve: Serve with rice, baked potato or in taco shells. Garnish with grated cheese, chopped coriander, chopped chillis (optional) and plain yogurt.
