Let's get cooking

Made with healthy, nutritious beans and quinoa, this spicy vegan chilli packs a punch.


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon mixed herbs
  • 1 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce
  • Pinch of chilli powder, or to your own taste
  • 1 pepper, cut into chunks
  • ¼ butternut squash, peeled and cut into small chunks
  • 50g mixed colour quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 x can mixed beans with kidney beans, pinto beans
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 large handful kale
  • 50g Bute Island Red Leicester Sheese, grated


  1. Heat the oil in a pan and gently cook the onion and garlic for 10 minutes until softened.
  2. Add the smoked paprika, herbs, tamari/soy sauce, pepper chunks, squash and quinoa and stir well. Cook for a few minutes to coat well.

  4. Serve between two bowls and sprinkle over the grated Sheese for the finishing touch.
  5. Enjoy!
