Vegan Three Bean and Vegetable Chilli
A delicious, vegan chilli, loved by all the family. Absolutely packed full of vegetables to give you (almost) all of your 5-a-day in one go, and low in calories so you can have cake for pudding without feeling guilty!
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1 onion
- 1 red pepper
- 1 green pepper
- 1 medium sweet potato about 300g
- A handful of green beans about 120g
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- ½ tsp hot chilli powder we like ours mild, add more chilli powder to give it more of a kick
- ½ tsp dried oregano
- ½ tsp instant coffee
- 400 g can chopped tomatoes
- 400 g mixed beans I use the Tesco three bean salad. I've also used chickpeas which worked well
- 1 tbsp tomato purée
- 300 ml vegetable stock or a vegetable stock cube and 300ml water
- Salt and pepper
Finely chop the onion (1 onion)
Heat the olive oil (2 tsp) in a large saucepan.
Once the oil is hot, add the chopped onion and cook on a low heat for 5 minutes, stirring regularly.
While the onion is cooking, peel and finely slice the garlic (2 cloves), roughly chop the peppers (1 red, 1 green) and chop the green beans into 3 (remember to discard the nasty ends!)
Add the peppers, garlic, paprika (1 tsp), ground cumin (1 tsp) and hot chilli powder (½ tsp) to the pan and cook for a further 5 minutes stirring regularly.
While the peppers, etc. are cooking, peel the sweet potato (1 medium potato) and chop it into cubes (about 1½-2cm cubes).
Add the sweet potato, dried oregano (½ tsp), instant coffee (½ tsp), chopped tomatoes (400g can), tomato purée (1 tbsp) and vegetable stock (300ml, or 300ml water and a vegetable stock cube). Bring to the boil, then simmer for 20 minutes.
Drain the mixed beans (400g can) and add them to the pan. Simmer for a further 10 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper and serve.
I know the ingredients list looks long but it's basically just a pile of vegetables and some store cupboard essentials - don't be put off!
This vegan chilli is delicious by itself or served with rice.
