Although the weather is starting to warm up a bit now, a couple of weeks ago it was so bad I couldn’t help but crave a big, warm, comforting bowl of chili!
I love this kind of dish because you can just put all the ingredients together and simmer them together – the longer they simmer in the juices, the deeper and richer the flavours become.
I started with a base of browning onions and garlic in coconut oil before adding grass-fed minced beef. I then added dried chili, paprika, turmeric, black pepper, rosemary, parsley and oregano, as well as a dash of balsamic vinegar.
Then, I added: cherry tomatoes, passata, kidney beans, grated carrot and zucchini, aubergine, bell peppers (red, yellow, orange and green) and mushrooms.
After simmering until everything was cooked and the sauce was rich and spicy, I served with kale and a dollop of coconut cream.
I can’t think of anything better to eat on a chilly evening!
