Vegan diets are becoming increasingly popular and with the #Veganuary revolution, it’s become a lot easier to try this. A lot of restaurants have taken part in this and included a lot more Vegan dishes on their menus. Below is one of our favourite comforting meals, but Vegan. It’s packed full of flavour, veggies and very easy on the bank balance.

Fry the onions, garlic and chilli in the olive oil in a casserole or heavy-lidded pan for 10 minutes until softened, then add the peppers, aubergine, carrots and cook for another 5 minutes.
Stir in the chipotle paste, ground cumin, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, tomato purée, chopped tomatoes, stock, and bring to a simmer. Cook for 20 minutes then add the beans, and simmer for another 15 minutes, adding a splash of water if it gets a little thick. Season and serve with rice/quinoa and a topping of diced avocado and chopped coriander, if you like.
