Soya Mince and Green Pepper Chilli

Total Time
Prep 25 mins
Cook 15 mins

Resembling the traditional 'con carne' dish somewhat, this is a serious chilli when prepared exactly as described. The green peppers provide a diversionary edge, but the habanero heat tells - be warned! (or should that be 'be warmed!'?) Designed to suit both chillihedz and the Scoville-shy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in a large pan and sauté the onion till translucent.
  2. Add the garlic and all peppers and sauté till cooked, then add all the herbs and spices.
  3. Stir briefly, then add the passata and the TVP mince and heat through.
  4. Drain the habaneros, adding the soaking water to the chilli, then finely chop and sauté in the remaining oil with the chopped chilli seeds until the aroma catches in the throat.
  5. Serve the heat-haters first then stir the sauté mix into the TVP for the chillihedz.
  6. Serve with garlic bread.
