We love a big bowl of chilli in the colder months when comfort food is needed and this vegetarian chilli recipe is one of the best we have tried. Thanks to the Quorn mince, this vegetarian recipe is far lower in fat than a typical beef chilli, is suitable for vegetarians and can be ready in just over half an hour. Soft sweet peppers, a kick from chilli and a splash of sour vinegar makes this perfectly balanced, giving it a full well-rounded flavour. This recipe serves 4 people and will take approximately 35 mins to prepare and cook.
