Vegetarian, Protein Packed Chilli and Nachos – Meat-free Monday

Here’s a fab new recipe for you to try, if you’re looking to explore more plant-based meals! It’s vegetarian Chilli made with Quorn mince and mushrooms!

A couple of weekends ago, myself and SamSays hosted our first ever countryside fitness retreat – The Big Fit Sleepover.

I put together this delicious plant-based chilli which went down a real treat with all of the girls, as it was really filling and went perfectly with Rude Health Cornitas! (Seriously you HAVE to try these, they are so addictive!)

I love to cook a chilli, for big groups especially, because you can serve it in so many ways and it never gets boring! With tacos, in a wrap, on nachos, with rice, on top of a jacket potato, with wedges… the possibilities are endless.

(Sam stuffed hers into a taco and loaded up on sides of sour cream, braised black beans, guacamole, cheese, pepperonata and cous-cous!)

Give this recipe a try tonight and let me know what you think!
