Eat Well – Chilli Recipe

By November 16th, 2018Health, Lifestyle, Nutrition

One meal I love to cook up is a chilli, so I wanted to share it with you.


Ingredients – Organic where possible

225g of Lean Beef mince                                           Brown Rice

(Increase amount of mince if feeding more than 3-4 people)

1 medium sized carrot                                                Sprinkle of mixed herbs

1 red onion                                                                    Ground Black Pepper

Chopped tomatoes                                                       100g bag of Spinach

Kidney Beans (in chilli sauce)                                    Clove of Garlic

Coconut oil/Olive Oil                                                   Chillies of choice and to your taste.



1. Finely chop the red onion and carrot and put in a wok/pan, along with the coconut oil or olive oil. Get the medium heat on!

2. Put the brown rice in a pan of boiling water (enough for however many you are feeding) Brown rice can take up to 35 minutes to cook and keep an eye on the water. Stir the rice occasionally.

3. While the rice is cooking, start adding the other ingredients. First of all add the mince and brown off. Then add the  chopped tomatoes, kidney beans and stir in.

4. Finely chop the garlic and chillies. Add these along with a sprinkle of black pepper and mixed herbs. Lower the heat and leave the chilli to simmer, stirring occasionally.

5. Next you need to roughly chop the spinach. My little nutritional twist.

6, Check the texture of the rice and when cooked drain ready to serve.

7. The final thing to do is turn the heat off for the chilli and then stir in the spinach. I do this right at the end as spinach doesn’t require much cooking and it means more nutritional benefits by adding it at the end.

8. Serve and enjoy! An optional extra to serve with it would be a soft organic goats cheese.
