My son chose this recipe. He's really fussy!! He loved the wedges and actually ate some of the pulses but left the rest. That's massive progress though. I really enjoyed it and so did my other children. Would defo change it up a bit now I've got an idea of the taste.

I used red pepper and added wraps for serving this tasty chilli. Black eyed beans and chick peas were what I had and they were a good combo.

I enjoyed the wedge-chilli combo more than I would have enjoyed rice-chilli. I subbed grated carrot and peas for the pepper and accidentally put in too much chocolate but we both found it very tasty.

Delicious filling midweek veggie meal. Made it with black beans and kidney beans and added some courgette, mushrooms and carrot with the onions and peppers for a bit more bite.

I used 1 tin mixed beans and 1/2 big tin of chickpeas for 3 portions and added some sweet potatoe as I had some left over. I served it twice with rice and once added 2/3 a takeaway container of water and then a portion of cous cous and reheated it. It tasted lovely!! Didn't bother with the yogurt.

Hi, do the calories include the wedges or is it for the chilli alone? Thanks.

Yes they do! Our calories always include all items unless they are optional serving suggestions or it is otherwise stated just above the nutritional information.

Great recipe, didn't have dark chocolate so dissolved some cocoa into water and added that.

A couple of pointers: 1. 15-20 minutes isn’t nearly enough to cook those pulses through. Next time I’ll do at least 30 mins and get it cooking before making the wedges. 2. Add salt to the oil when cooking the wedges- it will make them delicious. Another regret! Paprika would be a good addition to the wedge mix too.
