• 1 onion (medium to large), diced
  • 400g kidney beans
  • 400g plum tomatoes (1x tin)
  • 250g vegetarian mince (Quorn, soya mince or an extra tin of beans or lentils)
  • 1 tsp tomato puree
  • garlic, crushed
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp chilli paste
  • 25ml red wine (optional)




This recipe is great when you're a bunch of people out. And when you have a big pot :)
I always do this when I'm out camping with the ladies!

Fry the onions in the oil for a few minutes until soft
Add the garlic and let that fry for a moment
Add the chilli and give that a little fry too
Then add the drained beans and veggie mince for a further short fry
Add the tomatoes and tomato puree
This is where the red wine goes in, so keep it separate from the kids portion
The more red wine the better, let it boil briefly, then simmer for around 15-20 minutes

Serve with a fluffy jacket potato and a dollop of sour cream
