Red Bean Chili Recipes

Ingredients :

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 onion, chopped

14oz can chopped tomatoes

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1.25 cups white wine

1.25 cups vegetable stock

4 oz red lentils

2 thyme sprigs or 1 tsp dried thyme

2 tsp ground cumin

3 tbsp dark soy sauce

1/2 hot chili pepper, finely chopped

1 tsp mixed spice

1 tbsp oyster sauce (optional)

8 oz can red kidney beans, drained

2 tsp sugar


Method :

Heat the oil in a large saucepan and fry the onion over a moderate heat for a few minutes until slightly softened. Add the tomatoes and garlic, cook for 10 minutes, then stir in the wine and stock. Add the lentils, thyme, cumin, soy sauce, hot pepper, mixed spice and oyster sauce, if using. Cover and simmer for 40 minutes or until the lentils are cooked, stirring occasionally and adding more water if the lentils begin to dry out. Stir in the kidney beans and sugar and continue cooking for 10 minutes, adding a little extra stock or water if necessary. Season to taste with salt and serve hot with boiled rice and sweetcorn.

Serves 4

This vegetarian chili can be adapted to accommodate meat eaters by adding either minced beef or lamb in place of the lentils. Add the meat once the onions are soft and fry until nicely browned before adding the tomatoes.
