Chili sin carne recipe

Chili sin carne – the vegan version of chili con carne

A recipe that’s been on my list for soooo long, and now it’s finally so sophisticated that I want to share it with you: chili sin carne! Chili sin carne is the meatless version of the original dish, because “sin carne” is Spanish for “without meat”. But this chili has all the more intense flavour because I have refined it with a little cacao powder. Tobias, my business partner, would say here: “The plates will be licked clean again after the meal.” He’s right! So let’s not talk about the hot chilli for long, let’s get started!

Dieses Chili sin carne Rezept ist nicht nur super einfach nachzukochen, sondern auch in einer halben Stunde servierbereit auf Deinem Teller! Natürlich vegan, glutenfrei und sogar reich an Proteinen.

Chili sin carne but with so much more taste!

You can serve the chili either with some wild rice, quinoa or simply with some bread. It also keeps for at least two days in the fridge and often tastes even better the next day. The cocoa powder in particular (sure from Dein Kakao* self-promotion ☺️) gives the chilli sin carne an incredibly tasty flavour in combination with the tomatoes that will leave no plate uneaten.

This chili sin carne recipe will make you forget chili sin carne

The chilli also impresses with its nutrient density, which is simply unbeatable for a quick dish in just 30 minutes. You get a good load of plant-based protein – 15.5 grams per portion. That’s pretty impressive! You also provide your body with important antioxidants that strengthen your immune system and fight free radicals. Another plus point: the combination of beans and lentils provides important fibre, which not only supports your digestion but also ensures a long-lasting feeling of satiety. And it also tastes amazing – what more could you need? 😉

With this in mind, please let me know if and how you liked it and whether you have any other variations in store for me! You can find more protein-rich recipes here.
