This is my first recipe post here on the blog and I’m super excited about it because I finally started to stop dicking around and actually do it. As it’s my first recipe post it had to be one of my all times fav’s a good ole chili con carne. I bloody love a good chili and it was always a staple in ma house as a kid, the UK is cold and miserable so you know this really helped warm yah up.
Melbourne Winter has been a killer this year, I’m a big baby when it comes to the cold and all I ever want is some good hearty food to warm me up and give me a big inside hug.
This chili con carne hits the spot and it’s a regular winter warmer for me and a ma mate (he doesn’t really get a choice). It’s also a banger of a meal any day any season but it really gives you a lift through those cold dark winter days.
The other banging thing about Chili Con Carne is it can pack a lot of heat, and we’re a fan of all things hot and spicy in the Babe Street Kitchen. If you ain’t crying it ain’t good! That might be a slight exaggeration, but you get the point that hot and spicy is where it’s at.
This Delightful Chili packs two of my favorite foods in the plant world, Mushrooms and Chili’s. It also has a secret ingredient which makes it next level (its dark chocolate, but shhh! Don’t tell anyone it’s a secret, I mean other people probably already do this but I like to think it was my idea).
It’s Vegan ,Gluten and Dairy Free unless you decide to top it with sour cream then well it ain’t vegan or dairy free anymore.
This chili is super easy to make you just chop it all up, chuck it a pot, throw your spices in and bob’s your uncle. It’s also a super-easy way to pile in those much need veggies into your meals.
You can easily change up the veggies to what you have on hand. Tt’s also a good way to use up the last of veggies in your fridge.
Mushrooms are the main event of this dish! However I have made this with quorn so you can trade the shrooms with quorn, it works just as well. As a personal preference though mushrooms tastes so much better than quorn.
Give it a whirl, experiment with flavors and remember to keep on cooking, good looking!
