  • 1 tin mixed beans drained
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 3 tsp gravy granules
  • 1 tsp chilli powder use more if you like it hot
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 red pepper chopped
  • 2 medium onions chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • Generous pinch of pink/sea salt
  • Season with black pepper I use lots


  • Add 1 tbsp oil to a frying pan on a medium heat. Fry the onion, garlic and pepper for 3-4 minutes to soften.
    Add the tomatoes, beans, chilli, cumin, salt & pepper. Mix together and bring to a simmer. Add the gravy granules and stir in. Simmer for 10 minutes (stirring occasionally).
    Serve with rice, tortilla chips, guacamole & plain dairy free yoghurt.



Tip: I Used up some grilled peppers in this recipe but normally I’d use a chopped fresh one. You can fry it with the onion & garlic or add it when you add the chopped tomatoes. I’m not a big fan of hot food so added 1 tsp of hot chilli powder. If you like your chilli with a kick then add more to suite your tastes. Why not make double the amount and freeze it for another day.
