Spaghetti with minced quorn
Quorn is a (frozen)veggie meal with high quality protein and it is low in saturated fat.It can be served with pasta or baked potatoes.
Quorn ingredients and meals tend to be lower in saturated fats and calories than similar foods made with meat .
My hubby loves, to taste different types of food..(Unlike me,as am very choosy when it comes to food especially). So ,i tried making Spaghetti with minced quorn. It turned out to be so well, and has driven me to the extent of posting it in my blog..
Here goes the recipe.
In a wok, or sause pan, boil the water, add some little salt and oil, so that the spaghetti does'nt stick. Once the water comes to boil, lower the heat,add the spaghetti and cook for 10 or 12 mins till they are tender.Then drain the excess water adn keep it aside.
1 packet frozen minced quorn
2 onions finely chopped
1/2 tin chopped tomatoes
2 tbspn tomato puree
3 cloves of garclic finely chopped
2 teaspoon cumin powder1 teaspoon coriander powder(optional)
salt as per taste
chilli powder 1 tspn
mixed veggies 1 cup ( i used, capsicum, beans,carrot, can also add spring onions.)
In a pan heat oil, add chopped garlic, onions, saute till onions are cooked.
Then add frozen minced quorn.cook for few minutes, now add , veggies, and cook till they are tender.(or you can cook the veggies seperately and add them finally.Thats how i made. Its more easier and veggies will be cooked well.)
Then add 1/2 tin chopped tomatoes, and also add cumin powder,chilli powder and salt. let them cook for sometime, till the raw smell disappears.
Then finally add 2 tblspn tomato puree and cook for 3 or 4 minutes.
Can add more water if you want to have more gravy.
Serve it with spaghetti and some grated cheese on top.
