Vegetarian Recipe of the Day

I've decided to begin periodically posting yummy vegetarian recipes. Today's recipe is from the late Linda McCartney. I got it from The Vegetarian Society website. Enjoy!

Chilli Non Carne

The best chilli you'll get this side of Tijuana, according to Linda McCartney. Chilli Non Carne was very popular with the road crew on Paul's 1989-90 World Tour - rock and roll's first vegetarian world tour.

2tbsp vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1½ level tsp chilli powder (or more according to taste)
2 x 4½oz packets soya chunks or 4 vegetable burgers, crumbled
12-15floz vegetable stock or water (6floz if using vegetable burgers)
1 x 14oz tin chopped tomatoes
1 x 14oz tin red kidney beans
2 Mexican green chillies in brine, drained and chopped (optional)
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

1 Heat the oil in a large saucepan and sauté the onion until golden brown.
2 Add the chilli powder and soya chunks and brown for 5 minutes.
3 Add the vegetable stock and tomatoes, together with their juice. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
4 Add the kidney beans - and the chillies if you are using them - and simmer for about 15 minutes, adding a little extra stock or water if necessary.
