A protein rich spicy chilli with a lot of beans and soya crumbles .
You can get soya crumbles both dried and frozen. Frozen soya saves time. Soya can be genetically modified so look for GMO-free soya. It can also be very salty, so no extra salt needed!
Serve with whole bulgur and a dollop of yogurt. A chilli can be served straight away, but tastes much better the day after.
Not in the mood for going shopping? “Nothing” in the cupboards? This chilli you can probably make just rummaging around in the cupboards.
As a low fat alternative that is also rich in protein you can use Quark 1% instead of Turkish yogurt.
Also perfect for your lunchbox tomorrow!
