Serves 4 (plus extra chilli for freezing)
45 mins

We’ve taken the humble toastie to the next level, by packing ours full of plant-based chilli. This recipe packs a punch, and there’ll be plenty of chilli left over for freezing.


  • 3 tbsp olive oil (1 for veg base & 2 for mince)
  • 1 white onion diced
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 carrot diced
  • 1 celery stick finely sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 pack Meatless Plant-Based Farm Mince
  • 2 tbsp chipotle paste
  • 2 tbsp soy
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • Vegan beef stock cube crumbled
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 400g tin kidney beans drained
  • 4 heaped tbsp chilli jam
  • 120g vegan Cheddar grated
  • 8 slices of bread
  • 2 tbsp vegan spread


  1. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to a large, non-stick casserole pan over a medium heat. Add your onion and brown sugar and fry for 3 mins until translucent and fragrent. Add the carrot and celery and cook for a further 5 mins before adding garlic and frying for a final minute.
  2. Remove your softened veg from the pan and set aside. In the same pan, add another 2 tbsp of olive oil and increase to a medium-high heat. Gently flake your Meatless Farm mince into the pan and leave for 1 min. Continue to cook for a further 12 mins, moving about until the mince is nicely caramelized (add more oil if needed).
  3. Add your softened veg back to the pan, along with the chipotle paste, soy, cayenne, paprika, oregano and coriander and mix.
  4. Add your tomatoes, stock, lemon juice, kidney beans and a splash of water. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 10 mins.
  5. Now to build your campfire toasties! Spread a slice of bread with 1 tbsp of chilli jam, add a ladle of chilli, followed by 1/4 of the vegan cheese and add the top bread slice (repeat for 4 x toasties). Allow any leftover chilli to cool before freezing for next time!
  6. Add 1 tbsp vegan spread to a large non-stick pan over a medium heat and once melted add two sandwiches. Now for the messy part! Fry for a couple of mins each side until golden and delicious- don’t worry if some of your filling falls out (repeat this step again for the final two toasties).
  7. Cut in half, serve with your fave hot bevvy, sit back and enjoy a smokey, sweet loaded toastie that brings back memories of a crackling campfire- WARNING….napkins may need to be on standby!
