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.

Prep and cook: 15 minutes prep, 50 minutes cooking time

Servings: 4

  • red chilli 1, finely chopped
  • avocado to serve, diced

Spices:

  • tomato purée 1 tbsp
  • chipotle paste 2 tbsp
  • ground cumin 2 tsp
