This is my homemade veggie/vegan chilli recipe – it’s a really easy, cheap and filling dinner that only takes about 30 minutes to make. It includes sweet potato and butternut squash in addition to other veggies, kidney beans and lentils. It’s also gluten-free, so perfect for anyone with coeliac disease. If you’re a meat-eater, have you considered going veggie at least once a week? Some great health effects to be had by including beans and pulses regularly in your diet.
This meal will serve 4 hungry adults, with extra for the following day!
Cost per serving
This whole chilli cost only £2.75 – that’s a mere 68p per adult serving
This meal does not contain any meat, but the lentils and kidney beans provide a good amount of protein, fibre, iron and also calcium. It’s a good idea to try going veggie at least once a week – this reduces your fat intake and increases your fibre intake (great for a healthy heart). Each portion contains 250kcal, 14g protein and a miniscule amount of fat – less than 2g of fat per serving – healthy, low-fat and high in protein!
