Bring a large pan of water to the boil, add the rice and return to a medium boil. Cook for 20-25 minutes depending on required texture. Drain well and keep hot at a minimum of 63°C if not serving straight away.
In a large pan, fry the onions, garlic and peppers in olive oil on a medium heat until tender. Add the Linda McCartney Vegemince™ and fry for a further 3-4 minutes.
Add the sliced mushrooms and all spices then cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the chopped tinned tomatoes, marjoram and stock. Season with black pepper and Worcestershire sauce.
Cook on a low heat for 45 minutes, stirring if necessary. Add the beans and cook for a further 15 minutes. Alternatively, the chilli can be cooked in an oven covered with foil or a lid.
Remove from the heat a good 10 minutes before serving and adjust seasoning if required.
