Vegetarian Chili Con Carne in Lettuce Cups

Vegetarian Chili Con Carne in Lettuce Cups

Posted 2017-01-12 by finyfollow

This is a vegetarian chilli con carne made with [link http://reviewclue.com.au/quorn-mince-meatless-soy-free-mince-alternative/ Quorn].

I used dried chillies, which I first soaked and as this turned out very hot, just use whatever type and quantity of chilli suits you, bearing in mind that the green ones are not as hot.

I based this recipe on an advertisement for Quorn, and altered it slightly to suit.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Serves: 4 - 5

Ingredients
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 pack Quorn mince (available at Coles or Woolies)
¼ tsp chilli flakes
6 dried chillies, soaked, seeds removed
½ tsp cumin
400 g can chopped tomatoes
1 cup [link http://recipeyum.com.au/crockpot-24-hour-chicken-broth/ chicken soup] (or packet one)
1 green capsicum, chopped
400 g can red kidney beans
About ½ cup tomato paste
Brown rice
Lettuce leaves (optional)

Method
  • Cook the brown rice as per packet instructions.

  • Meanwhile, drain the kidney beans, and rinse them under cold water - leave to drain.

  • Heat some oil in a wok and add the shallot and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes until the shallots are just starting to brown.

  • Add the frozen Quorn, the chilli flakes, the chillies, and the cumin powder.


  • Cook for about 5 minutes.

  • Add the tin of tomatoes, the chicken stock, capsicum, kidney beans and lastly the tomato paste.


  • Cover and simmer this for about 15 - 20 minutes, making sure every now and then that it does not stick to the pan.


  • If using lettuce leaves (and these overcome some of the hotness!) put the lettuce leaves on the plates, and add the cooked brown rice.


  • Put as much or as little of the chilli con carne on top of the rice.

  • Roll them up and eat with your fingers, or eat it the polite way!
