Gluten Free Tofu Black Bean Chilli

Tofu Black bean Chilli

A light and flavoursome meal


I like to eat meat sometimes but recently I’ve been experimenting with vegetarian dishes. Tofu is an ingredient I’ve been using a lot. It works well as a meat substitute in a variety of dishes, it’s high in protein and calcium and since it doesn’t have a strong flavour itself it absorbs flavour and spices really well to make very tasty, flavoursome meals. Of course most importantly of all, it’s gluten free! Chilli beef is one of my all time favourite dishes of all time so I decided to give a tofu version a try. I really enjoyed this tofu black bean chilli. It was a lighter meal and it had a lot of flavour to it.
