Who can resist a really good smoky chilli? I make this chilli for family feast nights in our household and it works so well, as we pile it on top of Nachos or with corn tortillas, lots of chilli flakes and lots of additional ingredients, such as fresh coriander, spring onions, pomegranate seeds and plenty of pepper. It's a slightly longer recipe to cook, and it's quite complex, but it's so worth the time and effort. It's so fragrant, warm and just so incredibly appetizing.
If there is one thing I will say to you, don't be intimidated by the slightly longer list of ingredients. All of them can be found in your kitchen cabinets, as they are all popular ingredients used in every day-to-day cooking. There's no need to go and buy expensive pre-made kits of spice packs, as it's so much better to make your own at home and adjust the spice and flavour to how you would personally like it.
This recipe is completely vegan, mostly nut-free and versatile - you can swap and/or add any other ingredients that you like. For example, if you don't use soy sauce at home, this works just as well with tahini. I think I've banged on about this recipe enough, you just need to make it! (And don't skimp on the extras, life is worth living!!)
An intensely smokey and warming black bean and vegan mince chilli that works wonders - it's converted even the toughest meat-eating friends of mine. It's smoky, fragrant and colourful, what a combination!
