Vegan recipes that are easy to follow, tasty and healthy
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 tin chopped tomatoes
2 tins kidney beans (Or 8 oz / 225g dried kidney beans, soaked and cooked)
½ pint (275ml) vegetable stock
Raw cane sugar
Fry onion and pepper for 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, 3 tablespoons tomato puree, vegetable stock, drained kidney beans, 2 teaspoons chilli powder, 1 tablespoon raw cane sugar, 1 tablespoon vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir well and simmer for up to 30 minutes, whilst cooking rice.
This dish is quite adaptable: you can use fresh chillies instead of powder or add other vegetables such as carrots or courgettes. This is also really nice with TVP mince - if using the dried variety, soak it in the vegetable stock first so it absorbs the flavour.
