Jamie Oliver's vegetarian chilli

Last week I made a spaghetti bolognaise with quorn mince in an attempt to cut down on our meat intake. I wasn't impressed, even with all the flavours of the sauce the meal was just edible. I'm not sure if it was the texture or the lack of flavour of the quorn but somehow it didn't hit the spot with any of us. I guess the answer is if you want to eat vegetarian food just use vegetables and this recipe proved that theory right. Forget any preconceptions of a veggie chilli you may have and give this try. It's spicy from the chilli beautifully aromatic with the flavours of the coriander, cumin, cayenne and cinnamon and feels very healthy. Ok, I did have a dollop of Creme fraiche and some tortillas on the side, but even so, I'm sure it's good for you. Jamie Oliver has gone mega healthy all of a sudden, so I believe him when he says it's packed full of good stuff. 

The following day I added some vegetable bouillon stock and broke up some of the larger vegetables and made a delicious soup with the leftovers.
