Jamie Oliver

First we will have a look at the ingredients for Jamie Oliver's version of Meatless Chili he often calls "versatile veggie chilli."

  • 1) 500 g of sweet potatoes
  • 2) Two cans of kidney beans (or chickpea/garbonzo, pinto, cannellini)
  • 3) Two cans of quality plum tomatoes
  • 4) 1 level teaspoon cayenne pepper and some for sprinkling
  • 5) 1 heaping teaspoon ground cumin and some for sprinkling
  • 6) 1 level teaspoon ground cinnamon and some for sprinkling
  • 7) Olive oil
  • 8) 1 onion
  • 9) 2 mixed-color peppers
  • 10) 2 cloves of garlic
  • 11) 1 bunch of fresh coriander
  • 12) 2 fresh mixed-color chillies
  • 13) Lime or lemon juice or vinegar (to taste).

Paula Deen

Now a look at the ingredients for Paula Deen's Meatless Chili she calls "speedy veggie chili."

  • 1) 1 can of black beans (drained)
  • 2) 1 can of red beans (drained)
  • 3) 1 large butternut squash
  • 4) A 12 ounce bag of frozen onions and peppers
  • 5) Two 15 ounce cans of Mexican style stewed tomatoes
  • 6) 2 cups of vegetable stock
  • 7) 2 tablespoons of chili powder
  • 8) 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
  • 9) 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 10) Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish

Notes: Which recipe is best for you? Comparing the two lists of ingredients for meatless chili, possibly the biggest difference is that Jamie Oliver uses sweet potatoes where Paula Deen uses butternut squash. In terms of speed, Paula Deen's chili is aptly named. You could expect to complete her meal in approximately 20 minutes, and a little over 30 minutes for Jamie Oliver's.
