Before you start

Grater | Large saucepan 

Prepare the ingredients

  • Peel and dice the red onion
  • Peel and mince the garlic
  • Slice the pepper in half and remove the stem before cutting into small cubes

Start the chilli

  • Add a little oil to a large saucepan over a medium heat
  • Once hot, add the diced onion, garlic and a pinch of salt, mix well and cook gently for 5 minutes, making sure you stir constantly
  • Grate in the mushrooms (on the large grater setting), mix well and cook until soft
  • Once soft, grate in the carrot, and add the pepper
  • Mix well and cook for another 5 minutes until the vegetables begin to soften

Simmer the chilli

  • Add all of the spices to the pan and stir so that the spices are well mixed and coat all the vegetables
  • Stir in the harissa paste, veggie stock, tamari, balsamic vinegar and chopped tomatoes
  • Turn up the heat to high
  • Stir constantly until the liquid is noticeably thicker

Finish the chilli

  • Drain the lentils and add them to the pan
  • Stir everything together really well and then reduce the heat to a very gentle simmer
  • Leave this bubbling away with the lid off, stirring occasionally until it’s reduced to the right thickness
  • You can leave it bubbling for longer to deepen the flavours, adding more water if needed to keep the right consistency
