I've made some vegetarian chilli - only instead of chilli.. I put in cayenne pepper this time. And I put too much of the stuff in. It's quite strong .. but the thing is.. my German aunt will eat this for lunch tomorrow. And you know what Germans are like when it comes to non-bland food.
I read somewhere online that you can counteract this with lemon so I put some good squirts of lemon juice into the concoction. I'm eating a portion now and the lemon juice does not seem to have made much difference.
Should I put more lemon juice in? I've got red bell peppers, zucchini, kidney beans, tomatoes and onions in this. And as I couldn't find an aubergine/eggplant, I put leeks in instead.
What should I do to take some of the fire out of it?
