After my inital surprise that there were either very few or no recipes with the versatile vegetarian ingredient Quorn. I thought I should introduce you Americans to this great product. I believe it can be bought in the frozen sections of most large health food stores in the US and in all the big supermarkets (chiller and freezer sections) in the UK. It's great for vegetarians as well as a change for meat eaters. Give it a try!
- 1 (300 g) package quorn mince
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 bell pepper, chopped
- 1 (300 g) can kidney beans, washed and drained
- 1 (400 g) can chopped tomatoes
- chili powder
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- salt & pepper
- boiled rice
- Saute chopped onion and chopped bell pepper in olive oil for a few minutes.
- Add the pack of Quorn Mince and saute for a further few minutes.
- Add the kidney beans, chopped tomatoes, salt, pepper and chilli powder to taste.
- Bring to the boil while stirring regularly, cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes.
- Serve with a large portion of boiled rice - Basmati is my favourite!
- Can also be cooked in the slowcooker.
I cannot believe I've been a vegetarian for over 16 years, and never tried this product! I had used the soy crumbles as a meat sub in chili, lasagne, etc., but not quorn. I am now a HUGE fan! What I like is that (unlike the brand of soy crumbles I'd used) quorn is not pre-seasoned, so that I can add my own herbs and spices to taste. This is quite a good chili recipe---thanks!
I know that some US supermarkets carry at least some Quorn products. I believe the Quorn website lists which stores carry it in a given area. I haven't tried it yet, but my DH has and thought it was very good. He tried the nuggets. I'll have to mention this recipe to him; I expect he'll want to try it out. Update: I've tried Quorn nuggets now; they were so much like chicken in taste and texture, it was almost kind of scary!
