The second of my new-to-me recipes for 2021

A night or two ago, I was so 'bleh', having absolutely no inspiration for the evening meal. Himself and Youngest were of no help either, both of them looking at me blankly when I asked them what they fancied eating. It never fails to surprise me that those two are bottomless pits with hollow legs, devouring vast quantities of food quite happily yet never know what they want to eat .... some days I despair (ok - most days).
I came across a meme the other day and I knew exactly how the author felt when they posted this ...
Any way, I started mindlessly scrolling through various of my go-to veggie/vegan foodie websites, looked at one or two of my cookbooks then found this .... 'Meatless chilli con carne - vegan.
I have made something like this before a while ago and it was 'ok-ish' in the 'you eat it coz you're hungry' sort of way. However, this one looked simple, I had the ingredients and I was getting fed up with looking around.
Apart from the addition of a heaped tablespoon of crunchy peanut butter (something I always add to a chilli) and a few random mushrooms which needed eating up, the recipe was simple, easy and very quickly filled the house with most mouthwatering fragrance.
Jokes aside, it was good and warming and it does go on the 'make it again please' list.
Will I make it again? : Yes
Will I modify anything? : I always do - like I did this time with the addition of the peanut butter and I tend to add more vegetables that the recipe gives.
