To celebrate World Meat Free Day (on June 15th) here is a a meat-free themed recipe to inspire your evening meal (or lunch for that matter!).
This dish is one that I created when I was down in London with Quorn (check out my Meat-Free Curry Video Recipe for more inspiration!) and it honestly is so easy to prepare .. it’s perfect for a Monday night after a long day at work!
Eating a more plant-based/meat-free diet is not only good for the environment but it’s great for your health (and wallet too!). Plant-based diets are often lower in calories and higher in fibre in comparison to diets that are based around meat, and are often more filling too. I would recommend everyone has a go at having at least one meat-free day a week, so I’m all for a World Meat Free Day!
- 1 pack Quorn low fat sausages
- 1 red pepper
- 1 yellow pepper
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 100g pasta shells, wholemeal if possible
- 1 vegetable stock cube
- 4 tbsp good quality red pesto
- A handful of rocket leaves, roughly chopped
All pasta has a relatively low glyceamic index meaning that it releases its energy slowly, keeping us fuller for longer! The olive oil and pesto contain heart healthy fats, the vegetables and salad add fibre, vitamins and minerals and the Quorn provides protein, leaving us feeling fuller for longer (check out my blog post on World Meat Free Day for more information!).. this meal is perfect for lunch or dinner and should keep you fuelled for hours afterwards!
Brush the peppers with half of the oil and place under a hot grill. Cook until the skin is blackened and charred (10-15 minutes). Remove the skins, cores, seeds and cut into strips.
Cook the pasta according to pack instructions, crumbling the stock cube into the cooking water, drain and cool.
With the remaining oil cook the Quorn Low Fat sausages according to the pack instructions in a pan, cool and slice diagonally.
Toss the sausages, pesto, pasta, peppers and rocket together, season to taste with salt & pepper and serve immediately!
