Add the cumin, paprika, chilli powder and dried herbs.

Pour in the 2 tins of chopped tomatoes and the soy sauce.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Stir well and cook on medium setting for 4 hours.

Drain the kidney, cannellini beans and chickpeas and add to the chilli. Stir well and cook for 1 more hour.  

We like to serve with brown rice or vegan tortillas wraps.

Tip, if you’ve cooked this while at work and just want to tuck right in, the beans can be heated up quicker following the cooking instructions on the can and then mixed into the chilli.

Hoisin Tofu, Cucumber, Leek, Tomato and Lettuce Sandwich – Vegan

One of the eight limbs of Yoga, Yamas, includes Ahimsa – Compassion. Many Yoga practitioners choose a vegetarian or vegan diet as a way of living a more Ahimsa lifestyle. Compassion for all living beings and compassion for one’s self by eating healthy food.

It can sometimes be difficult to come up with tasty vegan sandwich ideas, here is one I came up with and really enjoyed.

Hoisin Tofu, Cucumber, Leek, Tomato and Lettuce Sandwich (Serves 2)


1 block of tofu

4 Romaine Lettuce leaves

1 Beef tomato

1/3 of Cucumber

1/2 of a Leek

A bottle of hoisin sauce

Bread of your choice


Slice the block of tofu into 4 and place under a high grill until browned

Finely slice the leek and cucumber. Cut four slices off the beef tomato.

Divide the leek and cucumber between two of the slices.

Place two slices of the grilled tofu on each sandwich. Put as much hoisin sauce on as you like!

Then place the sliced tomato and lettuce on top and finish off with the other slice of bread and enjoy!

I use Tofoo brand of tofu. It is very tasty and is made in the traditional way using seaweed rather than chemicals. Our local Tesco stock it.
