This recipe is magic! It’s not only super healthy and full of nutrient-rich, high-fibre and low-GI foods, it’s also ridiculously delicious! Normally it requires lots of slow cooking, but if you can use the Philips Premium All in One to speed things up with both the pressure cooking, browning and rice cooker functions. It’s all about set-and-forget, this is one of those dishes that you can pop on and forget about while you have a glass of vino.
This recipe freezes well, too, so we recommend making double quantity of the chilli and beans.
Turkey chilli con carne with black beans and brown rice
- 500g lean turkey mince
- 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 large carrot, finely chopped
- 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
- 1 large onion, finely chopped, plus extra chopped onion for garnish
- 3 cloves garlic, sliced
- 1 heaped tsp cumin seeds
- 1 bunch coriander, stems and roots chopped (leaves reserved)
- 1 tsp sweet/mild paprika powder
- 1 heaped tsp dry oregano flakes
- 1 tsp dry thyme leaves
- 1- 2 tsp chilli powder (optional)
- 2 fresh bay leaves (or 4 dry bay leaves)
- 200ml dark ale
- 1 cup chicken stock
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup tomato paste
- 2 tomatoes, finely chopped
For the beans
- 1 cup dry black beans
- 2 cups water
- 1 tsp salt
For the rice
- 1 1/2 cups dry brown rice
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 tsp salt
- For the beans, place beans, water and salt in the stainless steel inner pot and place in the Philips All in One Premium. Seal with lid and set to “beans/lentils” pressure cooking function. Once cooked, remove bowl from machine. Drain the beans and set aside.
- For the chilli, place the non-stick bowl in the All in One and set to “saute/sear high temp” function with the times set to 6 minutes. Once hot, add the turkey mince and half the olive oil, and cook until browned. Remove the turkey using a slotted spoon and set aside. Add remaining oil to the non-stick pot, along with chopped carrot, celery, onion, garlic, coriander root and stem, and cumin. Cook until translucent, resetting the time for the sear/saute function to 4 minutes.
- Return turkey (and any juices) to the pot, along with all remaining chilli ingredients except the chopped tomato. Stir until combined. Set All in One to “pressure cook”, and cook for 20 minutes, then release pressure, remove lid and stir in cooked and drained beans. The result should be a thick soupy/stewy texture.
- For the rice, place rice, water and salt in the pressure cooker and set to rice setting. This should take only 14 minutes.
- Meanwhile, mix together chopped tomato and extra chopped onion, and season.
- To serve, place rice in the base of a bowl, cover with chilli, and garnish with tomato mixture and reserved coriander leaves.
