Googie’s Kitchen presents No Bean, No Tomato Chilli

No Bean, No Tomato Chilli

Finally Ted, who is 9, was happy to eat this chilli. My son has never really enjoyed tomatoes. Recently he had a hair test and tomatoes are a food he can’t really eat at the moment. Hair tests show the genetic coding in your body that comes through your hair. It can help to show what foods are the best for your body. Nowadays they use hair testing in forensic science. They can now tell what a person last meal was through the hair on their head.

Now that I have discovered Ted can’t eat tomatoes for a while I thought I would start to make meals he has never really enjoyed before without the tomatoes. Beef chilli has never really been a favourite of Ted’s. I always thought it was because of the spices but I actually think it was the tomatoes. Now that the toms have gone this meal was gobbled up in a flash. Ted loved it and he hope you will too. Below is a video and recipe for you.

No Bean, No Tomato Chilli

No Bean, No Tomato Tasty Chilli was a delicious meal that we all enjoyed. It was easy to prepare and cook. I made double of this meal so I could freeze it. Then we can have it as a takeaway dinner on another night. We ate this with quinoa but you could have this with rice or even pasta too. However you decide to eat this dish, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
