Vegan Chilli Con Carne

Serves: 4 – 6

Difficulty: easy

Stove Top Time: 15 Minutes

Wonderbag time: 1 Hours



Fry’s Meat Free Mince

30ml oil

1 onion, finely chopped

1 green bell pepper, diced

3 cloves of garlic, chopped

5 ml cayenne pepper

15ml paprika

30ml tomato paste

15ml cocoa powder

600g crushed tomatoes

2 bouillon cubes

3 x 400g can black beans. Drained and rinsed

7 ½ ml hot sauce

15ml salt

Heat the oil in a medium sized pot, add the onions and garlic and fry until lightly browned. Add the Fry’s mince and fry for 2 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, bring to the boil, and simmer on high for 2 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent the beans from sticking. Place the lid on and simmer on high for a further 5 minutes.

Bespoke baby gear, designed with the supermom in mind!

When it comes to baby brands, there are so many great companies out there producing some incredible stuff. On an international level, we are of course envious of some of the adventurous, fun and fabulous products on the market (not all of which we can always get our hands on), so we simply cannot contain ourselves when every now and again we stumble across some equally great brands produced on our very own doorstep…
