Chilli con Vegan

Fragrant chilli packed with soya mince, tomatoes, peppers, chilli peppers, beans and sweetcorn!


A healthy yet delicious meal packed with lots of veggies, and a whole lot of flavour!

My boyfriend and I are going on holiday in 2 weeks and are trying out best to be healthy until we go, so that we won’t feel so guilty about eating everything when we get out there!! It was Friday night so we wanted a treat, but still wanted something healthy – a vegan chilli was the obvious choice! πŸ™‚

It’s such an easy recipe to make and although there are lots of ingredients to create the intense flavour, you will probably already have most of them in your kitchen!

Enjoy it on a bed of spicy rice, or if you’re feeling a little naughty – nachos!!! I always eat mine with a whole lot of guacamole too, it’s the perfect combo!

Recipe to my spicy Mexican rice coming soon πŸ™‚


Give it a go, and let me know how you get on!
