Nutritional content

Servings: 4 people

Prep time: 1 hour


300ml vegetable broth

1/2 onion, chopped

Pinch of salt

1 tbsp chilli powder

1 tsp cumin

Pinch of chipotle powder

Pinch of cinnamon

1 can chopped tomatoes

130g salsa

1 red bell pepper, chopped

3 carrots, peeled & chopped

2 celery stalks, chopped

2 cans of beans (any you like - kidney beans, black beans, pinto beans…)


  1. Take 60ml of the vegetable broth and heat it in a large pot over a medium heat.

  2. Add the onion and salt, stir and cook for around 5 minutes, until softening.

  3. Add the spices and stir well.

  4. Add the chopped tomatoes, the salsa, the remaining vegetable stock, and all your chopped veggies.

  5. Stir well, then bring to the boil. Lower the heat to medium until it is simmering.

  6. Add the beans, cover the pan and cook for 25 to 30 minutes, until the veg is tender and the chilli has reached your preferred consistency - feel free to add more broth if you need to.

  7. Serve hot. We recommend topping it with coriander, spring onion, red onion and some squeezes of lime juice.
