Chili recipe – cleaned up!
As the winter is drawing in salads are not quite hitting the spot anymore so I thought I would clean up the classic Chili recipe to make it more nutritious. I made it tonight and it went out a storm with our friends. Any leftovers make for a great lunch over a baked sweet potato!
1 large onion
1 large carrot
4 large celery stalks
250g of lean mince beef or Turkey
1 cup of puy lentils
1 tin kidney beans
1 tin borlotti beans
1 tin white kidney beans
2 tins organised chopped tomato
1 packet of Chili spices
1 tbs Coconut oil
Sauté the onions, celery and carrots in the coconut oil. After a a few minutes add the mince and cook until brown.
Then add everything else, give it a good mix and bring to the boil. After a few minutes turn down the heat and leave to simmer. Add a little water if you feel like it’s thickening up too much. Add extra Chili flakes and salt to taste.
I served mine with wild rice and sour cream. You can also try it with quinoa, baked potato or just on its own!
