Chilli Con Lentil in the Thermomix

Chilli Con Lentil in the Thermomix

This is another one of my bulk-cook freezer options, making a huge pot of rich and smoky beans that can be served so many ways. This recipe does take a while (don’t forget to soak your beans the day before!), but the actual hands-on time is minimal. I love the fact this recipe uses no cans, instead relying on fresh tomatoes and dried beans and lentils, just how nature intended.
