Quinoa and three bean chilli

 This is a really tasty high protein vegan dish that is quick to prepare and full of nutrients. Quinoa is a great alternative for rice, pasta or couscous. It’s high in fibre and full of nutrients such as B vitamins, iron, potassium, magnesium, zinc and calcium. It also contains a plant antioxidant called quercetin, which is a great anti-inflammatory! The beans add to the protein content and are themselves full of fibre and nutrients.

Ingredients:

1 small onion chopped

2 garlic cloves crushed

1 red chilli chopped

2 teaspoons cumin

1 teaspoon paprika

1⁄2 teaspoon chilli flakes

200g quinoa

1 small sweet potato peeled and chopped

700ml vegetable stock

1 tin chopped tomatoes

100g black beans

100g cannellini beans

100g kidney beans

15g coriander leaves chopped

Half an avocado cubed

Olive oil

Method:

Fry onion, garlic and red chilli in olive oil gently until soft. Add the spices and sweet potato and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Add the stock, quinoa and beans. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

Serve in a bowl with cubed avocado and coriander.

Works well as a delicious dinner too.
