3 Bean Chilli (GF, DF and Ve)

My 3 bean chilli is a great easy recipe which can be made using mainly store cupboard ingredients. It’s gluten free, dairy free and vegan too which makes it perfect for everyone. I use 3 type of beans for my chilli – kidney beans, butter beans and black beans however you can substitute these for any types of beans you may have in the cupboard. It’s also a great meal for batch making, so that you have extras for the fridge/freezer. I served mine with some homemade potato wedges, salad, vegetables and dairy free cheese but it’s very adaptable and is also great in jacket potatoes or with rice.

You will need:

1 tsp extra virgin olive oil (or any other cooking oil alternative)

1 onion

1 diced carrot

100g frozen mixed peppers (you can also use fresh, depending on what you have in the house)

1 tin butterbeans

1 tin black beans

1 tin kidney beans

1 400g tin chopped tomatoes

250g passata

1 vegetable stock cube (I use Knorr)

1/2 tsp chilli flakes (add more of less depending on how spicy you like it)

1 tsp mixed herbs

1/2 tsp garic granules

Salt and black pepper

1/2 tsp paprika


  1. Heat your oil in a large frying pan and then add your chopped onion and diced carrot. Fry for a few minutes until the carrot is soft and the onions are translucent.
  2. Add your frozen mixed peppers and continue to fry for a couple more minutes.
  3. Add your chilli flakes, mixed herbs, garlic granules and paprika. Stir well until your onion/carrot/pepper mixture is fully coated.
  4. Add all of your beans (kidney beans, butterbeans and black beans) along with your chopped tomatoes, passata, crumbled vegetable stock cube, salt and pepper. Stir and then leave to simmer for around 20 minutes.
  5. Serve your bean chilli with whatever you fancy – rice, jacket potato, wedges, salad, vegetables or anything else.
