This Vegetarian Chilli is an easy, one pot recipe that is full of flavour, low in fat and packed with protein. Serve it with rice, a jacket potato, or sweet potato wedges along with a slice of lime, sliced chilli’s and chopped fresh coriander. Alternatively, in warmer weather, serve simply with a salad. A stockpot is perfect for this recipe as it can go straight from the kitchen to the table for people to help themselves. The Chilli freezes really well so left-overs are not a problem.

Vegetarian Chilli

Serves: 5 

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 30-35 minutes 


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 large or 2 smaller red, orange yellow or green peppers
  • 1 x 400g tin of tomatoes
  • 1 x 400g tin of red kidney beans
  • 1 x 400g tin of chick peas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons chilli powder (or more if you like it hotter)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons tomato puree
  • Approximately 200ml of vegetable stock (fresh or from a stock cube)
  • 2 tablespoons (vegetarian) gravy granules if a thicker sauce is preferred. (We used Bisto which is surprisingly vegetarian!)
  • 350g Quorn mince
  • Any left-over mushrooms or fresh tomatoes can be added if desired
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to serve
  • A slice of lime, chopped chillis and fresh coriander to serve



  1. Heat the oil in a stockpot and cook the onion and pepper over a medium heat until soft.
  2. If you have any mushrooms and fresh tomatoes add these and cook over a low heat for approximately 5 minutes.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients except the Quorn, stir to combine and let simmer for 10-15 minutes to allow the flavours to infuse.
  4. If needed, add the gravy granules to thicken the sauce.
  5. Add the Quorn and once the mixture is back to a simmer cook for a further 5-10 minutes.
  6. Serve with desired side and topping. Enjoy!
