Vegetable Chilli Bowl… Quick Dinner

July 20, 2010

So this is a much-loved recipe in our house, something we turn to time and time again, mostly because it takes no effort and hardly any time at all but also because its sits around 150 calories per portion, and it’s tasty!!

You need;
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 red chillies, chopped
olive oil
2 tsp ground cumin
250g chestnut mushrooms
400g tinned chopped tomatoes
400g tin kidney beans
150g green beans
half fat creme fraiche to serve

Once you have chopped the few things you need to chop this is easy…

1. Fry the garlic and chillies in olive oil for about 2 minutes, then add the cumin and mushrooms and cook for a further 3 minutes
2. Add the chopped tomatoes and kidney beans, and about 100ml water, then simmer for about 10 minutes

3. Add the green beans and cook for another 2-3 minutes until they are tender


We normally have this with dollops of creme fraiche in a bowl with some nice crusty bread, but it’s filling enough on its own if you want to be extra good, scrummy on a jacket or with some brown rice if you really are extra hungry!

150 calories!! Amazing.
