Yes, that’s correct, there is cacao powder in this dish. Don’t worry, it won’t end up tasting like chocolate, it merely gives a certain depth and richness to the chili.
- 1 onion
- 1 tsp sunflower oil
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp sambal
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp cacao powder
- 1 can tomatoes
- 1 bell pepper
- 75gr Swiss brown mushrooms
- 1 small jar brown beans
Rinse the beans.
Chop the onion finely.
Heat the oil in a large thick based sauce pan. Add the onions and sweat them gently until translucent. Add the paprika, sambal, cumin and cacao and stir well.
Add the tomatoes. Bring to a simmer and cook for 3 minutes.
Seed the bell pepper and cut it into 1cm squares. Quarter the mushrooms.
Add the pepper and the mushrooms to the pan. Simmer for 3 minutes.
Add the rinsed beans and simmer for 2 minutes.
Serve hot. You can eat this as is, or serve it with some cooked rice (it can serve 3-4 if adding rice)
