Quorn Mince: Quorn Spaghetti Bolognese


Let me first tell you a bit about Quorn as I am not sure how popular it is out of the UK.  Quorn' is the brand name for a range of meat-free ingredients and meals available in all UK supermarkets.    Quorn is  versatile and quick to cook.  The mycoprotein used to produce Quorn is extracted from a fungus, Fusarium venenatum, which is grown in large fermentation vats.

Quorn is produced as both a cooking ingredient and a range of ready meals. It is sold as a health food and an alternative to meat, especially for vegetarians.  They are sold in the chilled and freezer food section of supermarkets.   The binding agent for Quorn is egg .  Please checkout www.quorn.co.uk for more information and the range of products they make.

All my Quorn recipes have been posted especially for my sons and all young students who love Quorn and are looking for quick recipe ideas.

Ingredients for 2 servings:

3 cups of Quorn Mince
1 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
4 cups or Passata or  tinned chopped tomatoes
2 tsp dried oregano
½ teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon of coriander and cumin powder
3-4 cups of  fettucini (you can use spaghetti too)
Grated cheddar cheese

Method:

1.  Heat the oil in a saucepan and add the tomatoes (passata ot chopped tomatoes)

2.  Add the garlic, salt, pepper and cumin/coriander powder.

3.  Add the Quorn mince.  You can add mixed vegetables to this as well  if you wish to..


4.  Add half a cup of water to the mixture and allow it to simmer for 20 -25 minutes.  This enables the mince to absorb all the flavours.




5.  In the meantime, heat some hot water ready to cook the fettuccine or spaghetti as per the instruction on the packet.

6.  Serve the fettuccine hot topped with the Quorn Bolognese and cheese.
