Chilli Con Quorn - My Mumma's recipe! 

All credit goes to my darling Mumma for this recipe. Basically, she started making this years ago when I was a vegetarian. (Now I just eat poultry) It's a real winner in our family, we all love it. The fact that it's made with quorn makes it super healthy which is good! 

(Please ignore my rubbish photo taking skills!)

Ingredients.(Serves 4) 

1 bag of Quorn. 
1tbsp sunflower oil
 2 cloves garlic, crushed.
1 large onion, diced.
1 red pepper, de-seeded and chopped 
1 small tin of kidney beans, drained
1 tbsp chilli (obviously adjust this to how hot you like it!)
1  400g tin chopped tomatoes 
squeeze tomato purée
vegetable gravy granules to thicken.


1. Add tbsp sunflower oil to a medium saucepan and heat. Add the diced onions and fry gently for 5-6 minutes. Be careful not to brown.
2. Add the garlic cloves and fry for 1-2 minutes. Then add the peppers and cook for a few minutes. Add the chilli powder and tomato purée. Stir.
3. Add the quorn mince and tinned tomatoes and half a tin of water  Bring to the boil and let simmer gently for fifteen minutes.
4. Add the kidney beans to the chilli and cook through for a few minutes.
5. If it needs it, thicken with a tablespoon of vegetable gravy granules, make it as thick as you like!
6. Serve when ready! I like to serve it with wholegrain rice, but you can serve it with garlic bread, jacket potatoes or chips. You can also add a dollop of sour cream/grating of cheese!
