Who doesn’t enjoy a good chilli? Packed with rich, smoky flavours, there are few meals so comforting, warming and satisfying for a midweek family meal or weekend treat in front of the TV. Not only is it easy to make, it’s also perfect for making in bulk and freezing.
If you’re doing Veganuary but don’t yet have a stockpile of recipes, chilli is a great one to try. There are as many recipes for plant-based chillis as there are vegetables, but this one is super-tasty (and see the top tips to make it super-speedy, too!) and doesn’t rely on meat substitutes. We’ve used vegan cheese both as a topping and to mix in to the chilli itself for extra indulgence (we recommend Asda’s free-from mature cheddar or Applewood’s smoked vegan cheese).
