    Soften the onion, garlic, carrot and celery in corn oil.

  • 2.

    In a separate frying pan, fry the mince until coloured (approximately 3-4 minutes).

  • 3.

    Pour the mince over the vegetables, add the dried chilli powder and then the black beans, the tomato passata, the tomato puree, vegetable stock and a bay leaf.

    Cook gently for approximately 40 minutes to one hour.

If you can’t get corn oil, olive oil is fine.

Mushrooms can also be used instead of the Quorn mince.
