Cheat’s Guide to Quick Bean Chilli Bowls 

Dinner can be on the table in 10 minutes if you use these ideas, using super healthy beans and vegetables!

Bean chilli options:
Mix one jar good quality chunky tomato pasta sauce with 1 tin black beans or kidney beans (drained) and add a spoonful of your favourite Mexican spice mix (e.g. Burrito spice) or your favourite chilli sauce, to taste; heat through in saucepan or microwave.

Rice options:
Heat one precooked sachet of black rice, or cook 1 cup dry black rice as per packet instructions; or use frozen cauliflower rice, heated per packet instructions.

Vegetable topping options:
Drain a small tin of corn kernels, slice an avocado, halve 8 cherry tomatoes, slice some red onion if you like it, shred a handful of lettuce or red cabbage, slice strips of red or yellow capsicum.

Garnish options:
A dollop of Greek yoghurt, a few jalapeno chilli slices from a jar, a sprinkling of cheese, a handful of chopped fresh coriander, a wedge of lime.

Place some rice and chilli into the bottom of 4 serving bowls, arrange the vegetables decoratively on the top, and garnish with the toppings as per personal preference.
