Campsite cooking: Vegan chilli non carne

  More Camping recipes

Sitting around the campfire with a spicy bowl of chilli is one of the best things about camping and you don't need to miss out if you have a plant-based diet.

This is a camper’s dream recipe as most of the ingredients are tinned or dry – including the vegan mince – so you don’t have to worry about keeping them fresh. It’s also easy to make and we think it tastes just as good as a meat version.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 200g textured vegetable protein (dried soy mince)
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tin kidney beans
  • 2 fresh jalapeño chillies
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 cups Basmati rice

Cooking instructions

Step 1:

Pour the can of chopped tomatoes into a saucepan over a medium heat, then add three-quarters of a can of water to the pan. Add the soy mince and the rest of the dry ingredients then pierce one of the chilli peppers and add it to the mix for flavour. Bring it to a simmer and leave to cook gently for 20 minutes.

Step 2:

Check regularly to make sure the soy mince isn’t absorbing too much liquid. If it looks like it is sticking to the pan, add a little more water.

After 20 minutes, drain the kidney beans, add to the pan and cook for further 10 minutes.

Step 3:

Now cook the basmati rice in another pan according to the pack instructions.

Step 4:

Discard the cooked jalapeño, then serve the chilli on a bed of rice, with chopped avocado and slices of the remaining fresh chilli pepper.

 

Top tip:

Use beef or pork mince as a meaty alternative to the dried soy mince

Outdoor Revolution Twin Burner Gas Stove and Grill

The Twin Burner Gas Stove and Grill lets you up your campsite cooking game considerably, offering the perfect blend of high performance, compact size and style. What makes it unique is the way it operates.

Unusually for a double burner and grill, it runs off a 450g screw-fitting butane/propane canister – which Outdoor Revolution also supplies – rather than a heavy, refillable gas cylinder, cutting down on space and weight during transportation. You only pay for the gas you need to use when you are away, whether it be for a weekend or an extended trip.

Expect to pay: £99.99
