Ingredients

Three Bean Chilli Stuffed Peppers

  • 1 brown onion, minced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 25g soy mince, rehydrated with 75ml hot water
  • 1 tbsp of tomato puree
  • Spice mix; 1 tsp of the following; smoked paprika, ground cumin, ground coriander, chilli powder (use mild or hot, it’s up to you), and 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp of the following; dried oregano, soy sauce and fish free Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 400g tin of chopped tomatoes (blend with a blender/food processor until smooth)
  • One 400g tin of three bean salad in water, drained and well rinsed
  • 3 peppers, sliced in half with the seeds removed
  • 2 tbsps of breadcrumbs
  • 1/2tsp of dried parsley
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

To make the Three Bean Chilli

1. Add the onion and garlic to a frying pan over a medium heat, I used a nonstick pan so I didn’t add oil. Allow to cook for five minutes.

2. Then add the soy mince, tomato puree and spice mix, give it a good mix to combine.

3. When that’s all mixed well, add the tomatoes, oregano, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Allow to gently simmer and thicken for about fifteen minutes. Add the beans at the end and give them a couple of minutes to heat through.

4. Once the chilli has thickened and the beans are hot, set aside.

To prepare the peppers

1. Prepare your seasoned breadcrumb mix; mix together two tbsps of breadcrumbs, half a tsp of dried parsley and a pinch of both salt and pepper.

2. Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C/400°F.

3. Wash, slice and remove the seeds from the peppers. Place them onto a microwave safe plate and microwave on high for two minutes, then allow them to cool.

4. Place the peppers into an oven safe dish, spoon the chilli into them, then sprinkle over the breadcrumb mix.

5. Oven cook for 15-20 minutes, allow to rest for two minutes before serving.
