Sauté the garlic, onion, celery, carrots and peppers for a few minutes, on a medium heat, until softened. Add the cumin, chilli powder, salt and pepper and stir.

Notes Note: The only thing that stops this recipe from being gluten-free, is that most soy-mince brands I've seen tend to have barley in the ingredients.

    Hi, I am curious why this dish is called Vegan "Chilli Con Carne"? After all, the words 'con carne' refers to meat, 'with meat' to be exact.

    Follow up, should remember not to press 'enter' before completing the comment!!!!!!! What I was about to say, I loved the dish. I did substitute the soya mince (I don't like it) with split yellow lentils. Overall, it was a delish dish! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
