Easy vegan tofu chilli

    1 hour 15 min

    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.

    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


    This was nice but it lacked any real chilli kick. I added some fresh herbs but it was still pretty bland. Will add a chopped fresh chilli next time.  -  28 Apr 2015
