Simple Vegetable Chilli

14 Oct

I have made this many many times and it is always lovely and so easy to make.  It freezes really well and only ever needs a touch more chilli powder once defrosted 😀

It is a recipe I have adapted from the BBC Good Food website, see a theme here, and the original recipe can be found here.

Serves – 2 really hungry people

Syns per serving -Free on EE


  • 2 garlic cloves , crushed
  • 2 red chillies , finely chopped
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 250g chestnut mushrooms , quartered
  • 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 400g tin of kidney beans
  • 150g green beans , cut into lengths
  • 1 tbsp chilli powder – or less if you don’t like it too spicy
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree – 1/2 syn
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 Courgette chopped if you have any lying around


  • Fry the garlic, onion and chilli in fry light for 2 minutes.
  • Add the cumin, mushrooms and courgette if using and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes, tomato puree and kidney beans and 100ml water, stir and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add the green beans and cook for another 5-10 minutes until the sauce is thickened and veg is tender.
