Huge Tasty Lunch

I just rustled up a veggie chilli for lunch. For variety, served with sauté potatoes. 2½ points each. Serves two.

Finely chop 1 onion, 2 cloves garlic, and one de-seeded chilli pepper.
Fry in Fry-lite until the onions start to brown.
While this is cooking, chop a green or red pepper 4-6 mushrooms, and a carrot.
Add it all to the pan with a crumbled veggie stock cube into the pan.
Rinse 1 small tin kidney beans and add to the pan, and a large tin chopped tomatoes.
Throw in herbs and spices to taste: I like mixed herbs, paprika, cumin and a little coriander, and often add HP sauce (no, really, try it) at this stage as well.

Leave to simmer while you boil some new potatoes (250g is 1½points each, included in the above). I did them for about 15 minutes so they were almost cooked. Drain and allow to cool enough to handle. Chop into slices and saute in Fry-lite.

You can either just bung it on a plate or serve in layers in an bowl. Even with a pitta bread as well, it's still only 5 points!
