Spring Green Medley with Quorn

Spring Green Medley with Quorn

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!

 

I’ve used Quorn Style Chicken Pieces (from the chilled section of the supermarket!) to make this dish high in protein yet low in calories. You can read more about my collaboration with Quorn [here]!

 

Asparagus and Quorn Medley

 

Quorn Spring Green Medley

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!

    Easy to make ✅ Quick to make (so I don’t get hungry and nibble bad stuff) ✅ not expensive ✅ feel great after eating ✅ have more for tomorrow because I just made it for me ✅ what’s not to love. Amazingly simple, fresh and yumsome! (And I’m not a veggie)

    It’s so hard to get Quorn chicken in Aus. I used to always put it in dishes.
    This looks yummy.

    Need to try this sometime soon. I am getting bored of eating lentils and it will be nice to have something different like this, thanks!
