Calories: 1206


  • 12 oz Quorn pieces
  • 1 red onion peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper cored, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves peeled and finely sliced
  • 28 oz canned red kidney beans drained
  • 28 oz canned chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 tbsp granulated artificial sweetener
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Place the Quorn pieces in a large, non-stick saucepan with the chopped onion, red pepper and garlic. Add the kidney beans, chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, sweetener and paprika and stir to mix.
  • Bring to the boil, stirring occasionally, and cook over a medium heat for about 15 minutes. Stir in the parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve immediately, or leave to cool and chill overnight so that the flavours have time to develop - reheat the following day to serve. Accompany with baked potato wedges or boiled rice, and a crisp green salad.

Cook's note

  • To prepare potato wedges to accompany the chilli, preheat oven to 200°C/Gas 6. Cut 2 large baking potatoes into thick wedges, lightly spray with Fry Light, season with sea salt and bake in the hot oven for 20-25 minutes until crisp on the surface and cooked through.
