Beans beans the magical fruit...are a cheap source of fiber, protein, folic acid, as well as calcium, lysine, antioxidants, and minerals such as magnesium, iron, zinc and potassium. So why not make chilli every now and then and load up on all these nutrients!
Not only is this incredibly affordable, it is extremely easy and can be paired with some brown rice or quinoa to make it go even further!
The ingredients are pretty basic too! And there is opportunity to vary the flavours.
This recipe uses the typical Mexican/Texan flavourings of a chilli con carne, but there's nothing stopping you from making it Italian, by replacing the spices with oregano, basil, rosemary and thyme. You could easily make this Indian as well by replacing the spices with cumin, curry powder, garam masala and ground coriander.
This recipe is also Low FODMAP by omitting the garlic, onion, and mushroom, and consuming in moderation. It might be worth increasing the amount of carrot and reducing the amount of beans, and serving on the side of rice, quinoa or your favourite low FODMAP toast.
