This spring dish may look unusual, but it is honestly so simple to prepare and tastes delicious either hot or cold – it’s the perfect addition to your Meat-Free Monday ‘evening meal staple dish list’ plus lunch box the following day!
This super-foods recipe provides 3 portions of the recommended 5 portions of fruit and vegetables that we should be eating daily (ideally we should eat between 5 and 9 portions to be as healthy as possible!) and is the perfect start the spring/summer season!
- 300g frozen peas + 100ml water
- 1/2 red onion, diced
- 1 clove of garlic, diced + 100ml water
- 4 asparagus stalks
- 1 courgette (300g), diced
- 1 tsp fresh thyme
- 350g Quorn Chicken Style Pieces*
- Salt & pepper to taste
*You can get Quorn from Ocado!
Add the frozen peas to a pan of boiling water and simmer for 3-4 minutes before draining and adding to a food processor along with salt & pepper to season and 100ml water. Blitz to make a pea puree - it shouldn't be completely smooth!
In a frying pan, fry the diced red onion in a little oil/1 cal spray oil for 1-2 minutes before adding the garlic & 100ml water. Slice off the asparagus tips (keep for later!) and finely slice the remaining stems before adding them to the pan along with the pea puree. Stir well.
Add the finely diced courgette to the pan, along with the Quorn chicken style pieces and thyme & simmer for 6 minutes, stirring half way through.
Divide your spring medley of green vegetables with Quorn pieces between two plates and top with two asparagus tips on each and enjoy or store in the fridge for later - you can enjoy this dish either hot or cold!
