Hi.

Welcome to Live & Let Eat. A place where I document recipes I've made based around simple food that kicks butt. Have a nice stay!

Pulled eggplant, lentil & black bean chilli

Pulled eggplant, lentil & black bean chilli

The only vegetarian/vegan chilli recipe you will ever need. Take that trip down to the specialist Latin supermarket and pick up some of these more authentic ingredients and take your average chilli from not bad to bad ass. This recipe uses dried mulato chilli which is a commonly used chilli in Mexico. Its sweet and low in heat. 

Pulled eggplant has made an appearance on L&LE before. Its a great way to have a "meat" like texture in a vegetarian dish.

Serve in tacos, burritos, nachos or with rice etc etc

Serves 5-6

Notes...

For the best results cook the eggplant directly on hot coals. Alternatively roast in oven at 220 degrees celsius until fully cooked through.
