Chilli Con Beans

This hearty dish is delicious all year round! It can be enjoyed with rice, or even as a salad topping. A great batch cook idea for lunches in the week, and packed full of protein to keep your muscles strong and feeling great! Remember as with any of my recipes, swap the vegetables to ones you like best, or add more spice depending on flavour preferences. Everyone has different tastes, don’t be scared to explore yours!

Any vegetables you like! (I used: Mushrooms, Carrot, Pepper, Onion, Green beans, Courgette, Spinach)

Mixed beans (I used kidney beans, lima beans, cannellini and butter beans) if beans don’t agree with you, you can also use lentils or chickpeas instead.

10 blended fresh tomatoes, or 1 tin of tomatoes
1 Tbsp Cumin
1 Tbsp Chilli
3 Garlic cloves
1 Tbsp Paprika

Put the chopped vegetables (except spinach) in a pan with some and soften (5 minutes)

Add the rest of the ingredients (except spinach) and stir together with the spices (I add more spices as I go, according to taste)

Leave to simmer for 15-20 minutes and then stir in the spinach last.
VOILA! Can be served with rice, salad or alone.
