About this recipe: Instead of the usual chilli con carne, try this healthy tofu chilli that's chock-a-block with beans and veggies, too. For even more veg, try adding a chopped red pepper and some diced courgette.

  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 100g (4 oz) tinned or frozen sweetcorn
  • 1 (400g) tin kidney beans
  • 1 (400g) tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1L (1 pint 15 fl oz) water
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Delicious recipe, easy to prepare and cook. Added Cumin and Bouillon for extra flavour and mixed brown rice in with it. - 21 Jan 2011


Something else. Added Cumin and Bouillon and brown rice. - 21 Jan 2011


A pint of water took a bit long to reduce on a low heat and I thought it was a bit bland when I turned up the heat and reduced it. I added some tomato puree to add some sweetness to it, which I thought it lacked. - 28 Feb 2012
