Fat – Melting Vegetarian Chilli

Here’s a great recipe I tried out last night, tasted even better for lunch today! Eating the right foods is crucial to weight loss. This vegetarian chilli is hearty, tasty & has all of the right fat-fighting ingredients to help you slim down. The protein-rich beans help build muscle, while the hot spices boost your metabolism to burn fat. Perfect for a family meal or to freeze & eat later, this recipe will help you drop those extra kilos. Choose any beans you like – I only had cannelloni & chick peas on hand, still tasted awesome! I also cooked this in the slow cooker – perfect solution if your at work or play!!!


Makes 14 cups

 3 tbsp vegetable oil

2 1/2 cups diced red onions

1 cup diced carrots

2 red capsicums diced

1 medium sweet potato diced

2 cups diced mushrooms

3 tbsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp crushed chilli flakes

2 tbsp chili powder

4 tbsp chopped garlic

2 tbsp chopped jalapenos

3 cans diced, fire roasted tomatoes

1 can chick peas

1 can red kidney beans

1 can black beans

1 can Adzuki beans

2 tbsp dried oregano

3 tbsp tomato paste

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 small bag frozen corn


Optional toppings

Diced avocado

Light sour cream

Chopped fresh coriander




In a large heavy-bottom pot, warm the oil & sauté onions, carrots, capsicums, sweet potatoes & mushrooms, stirring occasionally until the vegetables start to soften, about 10 minutes. Stir in the cumin, crushed chilli flakes & chilli powder as well as the garlic & jalapeno, & cook a few more minutes until fragrant. Add the tomatoes, all beans & chick peas, oregano, tomato paste & cinnamon. At this point, you can add a little vegetable broth or vegetable juice or water if you like your chilli a bit thinner. Cover & simmer for 15 minutes, stir in the corn; cook 5 more minutes – until corn is heated through.

Serve with diced avocados, some sour cream & coriander, & spritz with a little lime if you desire. I even served mine over brown rice.

Enjoy – this is great!!

Delish easy to cook chilli dish!!
