1. Place a large non-stick saucepan over a medium heat with 2-3 tbsp of oil and add the onions, when clear add The Meatless Farm Co mince. Cook together for 5 minutes, until the mince has browned all over. Next, add the garlic, 1 -2 teaspoons of chilli powder, depending on how hot you like you like it, and the cumin and coriander. Fry together for 1 -2 minutes more. Sprinkle over the flour and stir well.
  2. Slowly add the wine, followed by the stock, stirring constantly. Tip the tomatoes and kidney beans into the pan and stir in the tomato purée, caster sugar (optional), oregano and bay leaf. Season with a pinch of salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Bring to a simmer on the hob, then cover loosely with a lid. Reduce the heat and leave to simmer gently for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally until the sauce has thickened.  Adjust the seasoning to taste.
  4. With 15 minutes of chilli cooking time remaining, pre-heat the oven to 180C Fan/200C/Gas Mark 6. Slice the red peppers in half lengthways and place on a baking tray cut side down. Bake in the oven for 5-10 mins.
  5. Place 2 pepper halves on a plate and spoon your chilli non carne into the centre of them. Top with grated cheese and chopped spring onions for garnish.
