Simple guide for chilli sin carne.
Chili sin Carne Stew
|300||g||tofu (I use 2 pieces of smoked tofu)|
|250||g||kidney beans (equivalent to 1 can)|
|250||g||sweet corn (equivalent to 1 can)|
|2||pc||fricasseed red pepper|
|Soy sauce (My secret Ingredient)|
|4||tbs||fresh flat parsley, roughly chopped (or leek rings from spring onions)|
Cut 2 red peppers into 1 cm cubes.
Grate the smoked tofu with a suitable grater and prepare.
Finely dice the onions.
Chop the garlic very finely – do not put it through the garlic press!
Otherwise it would become bitter!
Remove the seeds from the chillies and dice very finely.
Sauté the onions with 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large saucepan.
Add the chilli and garlic and sweat it.
When the onion cubes are glassy, add the grated tofu to the pot and fry at high heat for 3-5 minutes.
Then add the diced peppers and fry for another 3 minutes.
Wash off canned ingredients
Put 1 tin of corn and 1 tin of kidney beans in a sieve.
Rinse very briefly with cold water.
Add the beans and corn to the frying pan, add the strained canned tomatoes.
Pour in the vegetable stock.
Add tomato paste and stir in with a wooden spoon.
Season with grated 1 lime, cumin, paprika powder, sugar, salt and pepper.
Finalize and serve
Let the chili simmer for a good 30 minutes.
Stir well so that nothing burns.
Sprinkle with spring onion rings or roughly chopped parsley.
