Chilli con..carrot? Carrot con Carne? Give this one a chance..
Maybe it's weird to some but if you’re like me and love to utilise all food before going to waste then not weird just sustainable and efficient 😇. PLUS it was super tasty.
1-2 tbsp olive oil
2 medium red onions
2-4 garlic cloves
4 carrots grated
¼ tsp paprika
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
¼ tsp cumin
¼ tsp dried basil
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp turmeric
1 can crushed tomatoes
2 cans chickpeas
¾ cup black beans (just because I had them in the fridge - you can leave out or add more)
4 tbsp pickled jalapenos (optional) could sub for 1 small-medium chilli or chilli flakes (also optional)
Pepper to taste
Brown rice to serve
Heat oil in a large pot/pan, add in onion and garlic and cover to let sweat for approx. 5 mins

Add all spices to mix and let simmer for 10-15mins on low heat.

Top off with some home-made guacamole or coriander if you like!
