TURKEY CHILLI WITH BEANS
My favourite chilli con carne with a little twist 🙂 No beef, but turkey instead!Healthy, tasty, quick and easy. What more can you want?
500g mince turkey breast
400g chopped tomatoes, fresh or tinned(drained and rinsed)
100g tomato purée
100g kidney beans, dry or tinned
2 medium onions,chopped finely
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 chilli, chopped
Brown rice(200g), fresh salad and fresh coriander to serve with
BEANS: Cook dry beans with the instructions on a packet. You will have to prepare it much longer before cooking chilli.(and soak it overnight). Alternatively you might want to use canned kidney beans( as most of people would :)), just remember to drain them and rinse before adding to chilli 🙂
1.Place chopped onions and crushed garlic in a big pan with a little olive oil, fry until soft. Add meat and chilli, fry together for few minutes, when it turns golden add tomatoes and tomato purée. Simmer until it gets thick, around 15 min.Add beans and simmer for extra 5 minutes.Season with salt and pepper.
2.Serve with brown rice and coriander.
PERFECTLY COOKED BROWN RICE:
Cover 210g brown basmati rice with 675ml cold water.Bring to boil, then turn the heat down to minimum, season with salt and put the lid on. Cook for around 25-30 minutes, or until the water evaporated.Don’t stir until ready 😉
