  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 carrot, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 peppers, any colour, deseeded and chopped
  • 300g vegetarian mince
  • 420g red kidney beans, in water
  • 400g chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tsp tomato puree
  • 100ml reduced-salt vegetable or chicken stock
  • 200g easy-cook long grain brown rice
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper



1 Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan and add the onion. Fry gently for 2-3 minutes, then add the carrot, garlic, red chilli and peppers and fry for 2-3 more minutes, stirring often.

2 Add the frozen mince, beans, tomatoes, tomato puree and stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, for 25-30 minutes. At the same time, put the rice on to cook in plenty of gently boiling water – it will take 25-30 minutes.

3 Season the chilli with pepper, then serve in warm bowls with the cooked, drained rice.
