Vegetarian Bean Chilli With Rice – Recipe

I’ve done the research on this recipe and have a Slimming World, Weight Watchers, and calorie count so that if you decide to make this vegetarian bean chilli with rice you’ll know exactly what you’re dealing with.

You will want to allow 100g of cooked white rice per person to add to the meal; this is included in the meal value calculations. The chilli will keep in a sealed box in the fridge for about 3 days, or freezes for up to 3 months if well insulated. Vegetarian Bean Chilli With Rice - Wholesome IrelandCalories Per Serving: 132

What is curd? Sweet curd is made with 4 main ingredients. 3 of which are always butter, sugar, and eggs. The 4th ingredient is normally a tart or citrus flavour.
