This is a vegetarian version of a classic chilli con carne. Puy lentils replace the minced beef in this one, but you won’t miss the meat. The lentils not only add flavour, but also a great texture. This is a really healthy and inexpensive family meal that I like to serve with rice, grated cheese and some soured cream.
