In this recipe, a spice blend combining carefully selected dried chilli with sweet paprika and a touch of chipotle is used to add a delicious kick. Tasty tomatoes round off the strength of the chilli so it's not too hot.


  • 50ml olive oil
  • 2x large garlic cloves, finely sliced
  • 2x onions, finely chopped
  • 2x sticks celery, trimmed and finely diced
  • 2x carrots, trimmed and finely diced
