This is a top chilli recipe. Thanks to Di and Tracey for this one.
2 tbsp olive oil
Heat the oil, add the onion, carrot, garlic and peppers. Add the lentils and spices, the tomatoes and the stock. Simmer for 50 minutes. Add the kidney beans and chick peas. Remove the bay leaf.
That's it! Easy!
This is excellent for parties as you can make it the night before and reheat it, and it goes down well with both vegans and meat-eaters. Serves 4 big portions as a main meal with rice and garlic bread.
