Here is my Ultimate Chilli Con Carne (Chilli with ‘meat’) of course this is cruelty free & is filled with my seitan ‘steaks’ & pulled Oyster mushrooms to give it that ‘meat’ look & taste! It’s seriously good & perfect for the halloween season. You don’t have to use both the mushrooms & ‘steak’ mince.
