TVP is a delicious mince substitute for vegetarians and is available at most supermarkets. Tinned black beans can be found at Asian supermarkets or some small organic stores. Serve the chilli with rice or polenta.

This is a great, easy vegetarian recipe. You can make a large batch and freeze for another meal. It tastes even better the next day once the flavours really infuse. - 08 Jun 2012
