Querky Quorn Bolognese

February 16, 2012
Querky?I named my dish Querky because I wanted a word that began with Q and it vaguely means indifferent, (kind works as an alternative to beef). And… I made the bolognese whilst watching ‘Star Trek’… Say Something!

This recipe was inspired by the ‘Asda Fit For Life’ recipe ideas.

Ingredients:

400g minced Quorn, 1 large Onion, 2 small Garlic cloves, 400g of peeled Plum Tomatoes blended (if you have chopped tomatoes you do not need to blend them), 2 tbsps Tomato Puree, a handful of Basil, 1 tbsp dried Rosemary, 3 -4 handfuls of spinach, 200g sliced Mushrooms, 2 small Carrots, 1ooml Vegetable Stock, Wholewheat Spaghetti, extra seasoning to taste, Oil for frying.

Method:

1. Heat a little oil in a large saucepan and add onions to fry for 2 minutes.
2. Add quorn and stir and cook until cooked through.
3. Add the tomatoes.
4. Put on another saucepan of boiling water and start the pasta cooking process.
5. Add the rest of the vegetables to the “quorn stew” apart from the herbs.
6. After 6 mins add the herbs and simmer for 15 – 20 minutes.
7. Season bolognese to taste and serve with drained cooked pasta.

Saffy’s Top Tip

This recipe is too easy for you not to try out different vegetables to see what works.  Add mroe vegetables and change some around.  You could even try yummy snake beans or spice it up with chilli and hot pepper sauce!
