Our Chilli-Quorn-Carne recipe #ad

Recipe time! I know, right - how have we managed to operate a parenting blog for so many years without a single recipe blog post? Well, here we are... finally!

To celebrate Quorn's wonderful new campaign, 'Helping the planet one bite at a time', here's our favourite meat-free recipe, Chilli-Quorn-Carne. Daddy created this recipe a few years ago because Tom's a veggie and Lyall loves Quorn mince. My veggie chilli is naturally low in fat, sugar and salt, it's meat-free and it uses affordable, tinned ingredients. Here we go!

Serves 4

Ingredients – in order of use

  • Spray light oil

  • Onion

  • 1 cup vegetable stock

  • large bag Quorn mince

  • 20g (half small jar) mild chilli powder

  • 1 tin baked beans

  • 1 tin kidney beans

  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes

  • 1 carton passata

  • 1 chopped chilli

  • (optional) Vegan grated cheese

  • Rice or nachos


  1. Spray a large frying pan with light oil spray

  2. Finely chop a large onion and fry gently

  3. Add a cup of stock and simmer until all the water has evaporated

  4. Mix in a bag of defrosted Quorn mince

  5. Mix in mild chilli powder

  6. Mix in all the tinned ingredients and passata

  7. Add finely chopped chilli (saving a little to use later as a garnish)

  8. Season and simmer on a low heat for at least an hour - the longer, the tastier

  9. Serve with rice or nachos

  10. Garnish with a sprinkle of vegan grated cheese or chopped chilli
