I kicked off my vegetarian week with this lentil chilli, it was perfect for a cold day and tasted amazing. Chilli con carne is one of my favourite meals, so when I was researching what meals to have for my veggie week I found this of high interest to me. I wasn’t disappointed either, even if you aren’t veggie you’re sure to love this low calorie easy meal. Serves 4

All you need is

1 tin green lentils

1 box passata

100g frozen vegetables

1/2 white onion

1 chilli con carne sachet mix

To make it just

Boil water in a saucepan and cook the frozen vegetables for around 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes drain the vegetables and place them back into the saucepan.

Open the tinned green lentils, if they are in water then drain them before adding them to the saucepan.

Add the passata, chopped onion and chilli sachet mix to the pan before stirring well and leaving to thicken for another 5 minutes.

Serve with rice or tortillas.

The reviews are in

This meal amazed me, it was so filling and delicious as well as low calorie. I didn’t feel the need to add meat or that meat was even missing.

If I was to make this again I would like to of not used a sachet mix and to of made it all from scratch using chilli powder, cumin and herbs.

Overall, this was a great meal to start my veggie week, it didn’t make me miss meat but rather made me feel like I could live without meat, or at least have chilli without meat.
