Chilli Sin Carne

You might have had chilli con carne plenty of times before, but have you tried a good chilli sin (without) carne? It's cheap, healthy and really easy to whip up using store cubboard ingredients!

Chilli Sin Carne
(Serves 2-3)

1 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
400g tin white beans (I used broad/fava beans)
400g tin kidney beans (or black beans)
1 tbsp tomato purée
1/2 green chilli, finely chopped
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp (smoked) paprika
1 tsp oregano
1/2-1 tbsp cajun seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste

Tortilla chips or good bread to serve, optionally top with a bit of cheese, or serve with guacamole!

- Start by heating the oil in a medium-sized casserole, add the onion and garlic and soften for about 5 minutes before adding the fresh chilli.

- Now, add the remaining ingredients and heat through. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve with whatever you want, or just the way it is. Perfect for a chilly Autumn day *smiles*

Also, last night I was so lucky to go to my friend Rowan Ross' second album launch, this time for his album "Fireflight" - check it out!
It was another friend who did the support act for it, and his performance was magic as well. I have to go to more local gigs in the near future, it's too good *smiles*

Today I am off and having a few friends over for dinner in the evening. I hope you have had a leisurely weekend and a great start to a new one!

  1. Hooray for veggie chilli! :) This sounds lush - I especially like the use of oregano here, it lifts any chilli to new levels of yumness right?

    1. Hey! Thanks Dewi, it certainly does, which is whyyyy I just realised I have to top up on it, I have been using basil instead of it since I made this chilli *adds to shopping list* Was thinking of making your kitchari for lunch today! x

  2. So cool that you're friends with a musician! I watched one of his youtube videos, he seems like an awesome violinist! Plus singing while playing the violin...that's amazing. :D

    1. Thanks June! He is one of those really talented local musicians, possibly my favourite violinist, and such a great friend too :D Thanks for checking out his tunes! I reckon you would have loved his gig, as he threw in some great solos! x

  3. Sin carne er jo best :D Dette høres nydelig og varmende ut♡
    Så koselig med middagsgjester i kveld! Kos dere!!!

    1. Heheh det høres jo nesten "synderlig" godt ut (beklager dårlig humor en mandags kveld!), besøket er på vei og middagen putrer i vei, god kveld til deg også Ragnhild <3 x
