Black Bean Chilli

black bean chilli

We are real chilli fiends in this house, even 10-month old Rory loves a good bowlful of hot chilli and rice (I do make his a bit milder by adding creme fraiche!). Thing is, I always make chilli with beef mince and I always use the same old (but very good nevertheless) recipe. Fancying a bit of change, I devised this smokey vegetarian chilli using black beans and kidney beans as the base.

It freezes really well, so I tend to make up a big batch at the weekend and freeze in individual portions, ready to pull out of the freezer for a tasty mid-week meal. Rice is the obvious partner, but cornbread would also be good.

  1. Like you, I always used to make chilli with beef mince and kidney beans, but recently found a brilliant recipe using cubed lamb, beer and black beans. I don't think my family would tolerate a vegetarian version, however good it looked!

  5. Chilli is one of my favourite dishes, especially in the winter. This recipe loks really good, I particularly like the idea of adding smoked paprika, I'm sure that gives it a wonderful flavour.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
