It didn’t seem fair to tell you all about prepping portions of veggie chilli in an earlier blog post if I didn’t show you what I made right?

This is a completely lazy chilli. Frozen veg, lazy garlic and lazy chilli. I only used fresh onions because I had fresh onions that needed using.

This makes 4 very generous portions


1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes

1 x 400g tin black bean

120g frozen sweetcorn

120g frozen peppers

½ teaspoon lazy chilli (more if you like)

1 teaspoon lazy garlic (more if you like)

3 x onions, diced

150g Quorn mince

1 teaspoon gravy granules

Tomato puree

A ‘glug’ of red wine

Paprika, Smoked Paprika, Onion Powder, Oregano, Mild Chilli Powder – all to taste




Heat the oil

Add the garlic, chilli and onion and cook gently till fragrant. Add the wine and tomato puree.

Add the Quorn mince and stir in.

Add the rest of the vegetables.

Add the herbs and spices, then add the chopped tomatoes and black beans. I like to swill out the last of the chopped tomatoes tin with a bit of water and add that in.

Simmer away for about ten minutes, add the gravy granules if it needs thickening.
