Two Bean Chilli

I've just made a pan of veggie chilli for our dinner tomorrow. I've started using a couple of varieties of beans instead of brown lentils and kidney beans, or VeggieMince and kidney beans.
1 tbs olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp hot chilli powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp dried mixed herbs
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 red pepper, diced
250g mushrooms, quartered
1 tin chopped tomatoes
Tomato puree
1 tin kidney beans
1 tin pinto beans
200ml vegetable stock, mixed with large tsp of Marmite

  1. Fry the onion until soft, add the garlic, spices and herbs and cook for 1 minute
  2. Add the diced pepper and stir fry for a couple of minutes before adding the mushrooms and continue to stir fry for a few minutes
  3. Add the tomatoes, puree, beans and stock, bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Serve with some rice or whatever else takes your fancy…tortillas, jacket potato…
You can use as many varieties of beans as you like, really.
