A bean chilli is a staple meal in our house. The recipe changes every time, my only rule is I HAVE to have all the extras. A chilli without cheese or avocado isn’t a chilli worth having, right?

1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp mild chilli powder
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 tsp tomato purée
Squeeze of Heinz tomato ketchup
1tsp sugar or 1 piece dark chocolate

@woodhillkichen began in June 2020 after deciding I could not take one more picture of my food to sit on my camera roll unseen by the world. Be it home-cooked or eating out, there’s nothing I find more satisfying than good food and getting the perfect pic!
Despite still working through lockdown, quieter weekends gave me the chance to experiment with new recipes and spend a little more time in the @woodhillkichen.
Proving vegetables don’t need to be boring and that cake is ALWAYS a good idea is my goal and I hope to encourage people to love their leftovers, shop small and support local businesses!
