OK, this 10-minute chilli might be 11 or 12 minutes but it really is super quick and packed with flavour. From start to finish it is ready in minutes. I use canned back beans and chickpeas and serve it with leftover quinoa. If you have rice or quinoa, great! If not, that’s OK, this vegan chilli can stand on its own feet.
10-MINUTE CHILLI TRICKS
To get this chilli done in 10-minutes I use a food processor to chop everything, including a fresh salsa. I then borrow the cooking technique from curry. Mmmm, curry. We build the flavour base at the beginning and simply add the body later. Trust me. It works and is delicious. Running low on time? If you’ve got a spare 10 minutes, you’ve got a flavoured-packed, high protein dinner for four. Enjoy, x
