Easiest slow cooker Quorn chilli ever

I love my slow cooker so much I have two!  A small and large Morphy Richards.  They're brilliant for making healthy hearty meals that we can all enjoy.  Better still, I often use our large slow cooker to make enough for two nights and for a pot or two for the freezer for even easier meals.

Here's my Quorn chilli recipe.  It's so easy, cheap, delicious and if you follow Slimming World, it's syn free too.  Brill!

Serves 4-6 hungry people (you can always half the recipe if you have a small slow cooker)

  • 500g Quorn mince (I use frozen)
  • Handful of chopped onion (again, I use frozen)
  • Four tins chopped tomatoes
  • Two tins kidney beans
  • Dried chilli flakes to taste (I use about four tablespoons, but we like it HOT)
  • Tbsp of ground coriander
  • Tbsp of ground cumin
  • Teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • Two tbsps tomato puree if you have it
  • Large splosh of Worcester sauce (you can also use a vegetarian equivalent, or omit completely)
  • One veg stock cube

Put everything apart from the kidney beans into the slow cooker and give it a good stir.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or high for 3-4 hours.

Stir kidney beans in about 10-30 minutes before serving.

It's as easy as that.

We serve it with rice, or it also goes well with nachos, tacos or wraps.  Yum.

Linking up with A Mummy Too for this recipe post.

Link up your recipe of the week


  1. Lush! I would definitely make this for the family. A lovely veggie recipe :)

    Pinned and Stumbled. Thanks very much for linking up with #recipeofthweek. There's a new linky live now - would be brilliant to see you there again! :) x

  2. Just a word of warning though - Worcester sauce is not vegetarian (as it contains anchovies) so you would need to omit this or use a vegetarian alternative to make this 100% veggie.

    1. Thank you so much for commenting and pointing this out. I have updated the ingredients list so this is clear. I'd love to hear how you got on if you tried this recipe!

  3. I have just discovered this with a little big of Google love and it is EXACTLY what I was looking for today. I've just pulled out an old slow cooker and wanted to make my quorn chilli today so this is awesome - PLUS I'm doing Slimming World so it's a triple win - thanks :D xx

    1. Great - thanks so much for letting me know. Hope it worked out for you and if it did, I'm glad I could help! :-)

  4. Agreed. Very nice to find a good veggie recipe. Thank you.

  5. Autumn is a month where the fruits in the super markets start to change and the ice cream counters are reduced to hold Christmas party things such as mince pies and savoury party snacks. Autumn food can be just as delicious as summer food if planned correctly.

  6. Fall is a month where the natural products in the general stores begin to change and the frozen yogurt counters are lessened to hold Christmas party things, for example, mince pies and exquisite gathering snacks. Harvest time nourishment can be similarly as tasty as summer sustenance if arranged accurately.

  7. Made this recipe at least 3 times now - great quick / easy and all the family love it.
