One pot vegetarian chilli wonder

This meal, that graced our dinner table (some time ago now), highlights just how easy home cooking can be. Using ‘whatever’ ingredients I had on hand… IMG_9151 (onions, garlic, quinoa, frozen peas, chilli powder, capsicum, carrot, oregano and cumin) Along with a trio of beans… IMG_9152IMG_9153 We had ourselves quite the vegetarian chilli party! IMG_9160 I would give you a recipe, but there really is no need. IMG_9161 Just heat some olive oil in a large pot, add the onions, garlic and your vegetables. Throw in the other herbs, quinoa and water (using a 1:2 ratio), and some tinned tomatoes, simmer for half an hour, and you are done! IMG_9162 On this occasion we served the chilli alongside a green salad .. IMG_9167 Jazzed up with some cucumbers, raw cashews and dried cranberries. IMG_9165 Too easy! The best part being that there are inevitably leftovers to enjoy for lunch or dinner the next day! What about you? Are you a fan of one pot meals? I certainly am – especially when it means there are less dishes to do afterwards!

  1. This looks wonderful Lisa – just my sort of meal when at home. I kind of wish I could have a pot on hand when travelling too, to dip into as needed 🙂

  2. Looks delicious. Def. going to try this even though I seem to have gone off spicy food (much to Kevin's horror). I love me a one pot meal.

  3. I haven't made chilli non carne for ages but now you have me hankering after some – esp with quinoa. One pot meals make life so much easier – wish I had one in the fridge now!
