Super Easy Slow Cooker Veggie Chilli
Super Easy Slow Cooker Bean Chilli with Courgettes & Peppers
Ideal to warm you up from the inside out with a bit of spice and heat. Chilli can help burn away built up mucas during winter and potentially give your metabolism a boost! If you suffer with acid or heartburn, or are feeling very irritable and hot headed, I would suggest taking it easy on the spice!
Vegetarian (or vegan without traditional sour creme)
Serves approx 6
2 tins of black bean or kidney beans (or 1 of each)
1-2 fresh chillies (depending on spice preference), chopped
1-2 onions, chopped
3 garlic cloves, sliced
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon chilli powder or paprika
2 x 500g passata
1 tablespoon tomato puree
2 peppers, deseeded, sliced and halved
2 large courgettes, sliced
Brown or basmati rice
1 avocado slices to garnish
2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander to garnish
A little sour creme to serve
Put all of the ingredients in the slow cooker on high for 7-8 hours (or low for longer) - if you have less time brown the onions first!
20 mins before due to serve cook the rice (and prepare the garnish if using)
