paleo chilli con carne (no beans!)

(for approx 6 hungry people)

  • 3 onions, two white and one red
  • 1 head of garlic
  • 3 sticks of celery
  • 1kg of minced meat
  • 4 bell peppers – 2 red, yellow, orange
  • 300 grams of mushrooms
  • 250 grams baby carrots, chopped into discs
  • 1 kg tomatoes
  • Passata (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 2  tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2  tsp ground cumin
  • 2  tsp chilli powder
  • 2 chillies, chopped
  • Some dried chilli
  • 2 Tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp or apple cider vinegar

Start by dicing the vegetables. I like to use fresh (peeled) tomatoes rather than canned ones but if  you are short on time, canned ones will suffice. (tip : find instructions on the internet on how to peel tomatoes) Dice all the tomatoes and place them in a bowl. Add 100ml of boiling water and 1 Tbsp of honey. Use a fork to roughly mush the tomatoes and keep aside.
then gently saute the onion and garlic in olive oil. Once the onion has started to brown, add the vegetables (except the tomato mixture)

Next add the minced beef to your vegetables and once it has started to brown, stir in the sun dried tomato paste and add your fresh tomato mixture. Season to taste with the cinnamon, chilli powder and cumin. be careful when adding your chillies. Finally, add the apple cider vinegar and soy sauce. Allow it to simmer for half an hour or longer if you can wait, this intensifies the flavour.

tip : serve with coliflower rice

enjoy
