1 brown onion
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp hot chilli powder
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground cinnamon
500 g beef mince
1 tbsp tomato purée
400 g chopped tomatoes
1 beef stock cube
400 g tinned kidney beans drained
50 g dark chocolate
50 g sour cream
1 sweet potato
1 pumpkin or butternut squash
  1. Peel the onion and garlic. Roughly chop them into chunks and place them into the bowl of the Compact Food Processor with the Knife Blade attachment. Blitz the veg until finely chopped. Put a large saucepan over a medium-high heat and add the oil. Tip the prepared veg into the pan and fry for a few minutes, until the onion begins to soften. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add the oregano and dry spices then stir in the minced beef. Fry for 5 minutes to brown the beef then stir in the tomato purée and add the tinned tomatoes. Cook for another 5 minutes then add the stock cube and 100ml of hot water.
  3. Add the kidney beans, turn the heat down and simmer for 15 minutes. Scatter in a handful of dark chocolate to melt and finish by seasoning with salt and pepper.
  4. Put a medium saucepan of water over a high heat and bring it to a boil. Peel the sweet potatoes and pumpkin or squash, cut them into large chunks then slice using the Thick Slicing Disc of a Compact Food Processor. Add the sliced veg to the boiling water and cook for 10 minutes, until they're soft all the way through. Drain and use a TriBlade System Hand Blender with the Masher Attachment to roughly mash them together. Season well with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve the veg mash with chilli over the top. Dollop over the sour cream and serve. Serves 4
