Forget the carne and embrace the veg with this aptly named Vegan Chili Con Vegetables.
When I first adopted a Vegan way of eating, cooking up a meal of vegan chilli was a super easy transition into plant based cooking . I’d rustle up a big pot once a week and stock up the fridge and freezer. It wasn’t until I mentioned to a lovely South American friend the joys of this dish, I was gently informed carne means meat!
Now in case you’re wondering the word chilli literally refers to the classic red peppers ‘con carne’ simply means ‘with meat’, of course! With this recipe, lets do away with meat and double down on the beans and vegetables which all comes together in a classic, smoky and spicy bowl of deliciousness.
There seems to be a perception that Vegan eating is expensive. I think that comes from some recipes which can have a long list of ingredients and not only that – lots of unusual ingredients!
Quite frankly I don’t have time for that. So this recipe like all others here at poach me quick is nutritious, quick, easy and above all tasty.
Vegan Chilli Con Vegetables dispels those myths and proves you can easily create a main meal for a family of four cheaper than buying a takeaway pizza.
If you’re already an advocate for bulk cooking, making meals in advance Vegan Chilli Con Vegetables is an easy and versatile dish to try.
This recipe can be done in a flash and is a true ‘one pot wonder’. Simply sauté some base vegetables and beans in a little olive oil, throw in some heady spices with a few tins of goodness and let it simmer away.
Forget store bought, ready to eat meals and embrace your inner domestic goddess and get prepping!
Finally, if you are planning a full on Mexican-style extravaganza, how about adding Vegan Nachos to the table. Salud!
