Seeing as it’s Organic September, this week’s recipe is a nice, healthy vegetable chilli!

Don’t worry, you don’t have to get the ingredients from your allotment. But it helps . . .


  1. Chop the onion and garlic and halve the peppers. Remove the seeds and chop into thin slices.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a heavy frying-pan with a lid and add the onions and garlic. Let them soften while stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the garam masala and some of the coriander. Stir-fry for 1 minute, then add the tomatoes, peppers and 100 ml (3½ fl oz) water.
  4. Add the crumbled vegetable stock cube and stir. Cover the pan and let simmer for 15 minutes while stirring occasionally.
  5. Add the red kidney beans to the pan and season with lime juice, pepper and salt. Add extra water if it’s looking dry.
  6. Serve the vegetable chilli with the remaining coriander, lime, Alpro Go On and bread or rice.
