Vegetable Chilli


Just watch in dismay as my carefully positioned garnish goes oozing down the chilli like lava from a volcano.  It really did look beautiful a second before.

Fry an onion and two cloves of garlic gently for five minutes in a little salt.  Add about 300g quartered, chestnut mushrooms and fry until they are even more brown than they were originally.

Add two sliced red peppers, a red chilli and some aubergine (if you have one).  Keep stirring while you cook these for a few minutes longer.

Stir in a teaspoonful of ground cumin, a teaspoonful of chilli powder and half a teaspoon of ground coriander.  Now add 2 tins of tomatoes, a tin of chick peas and a tin of kidney beans.  Simmer for 30-40 minutes with the lid on before garnishing (ahem) with sour cream, some red chilli and a handful of coriander leaves.

Perfect with brown rice or baked potatoes.
