Bolognese Chilli Recipe

Hugh rustled up some mince magic with leftover bolognese!


Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium-low heat. Add the garlic and chilli and cook gently for a couple of minutes. Add the cumin, cook for a minute more, then add the beans and cook, stirring, until heated through.

Add the leftover bolognese and heat through thoroughly. Taste the mixture and adjust the seasoning, adding a little chilli powder to spice it up, and some more cumin too if you like.

Serve on flatbreads with some chopped or mashed avocado and a dollop of sour cream.
