Do More With Quorn PLUS Speedy Sweet Potato, Quorn & Spinach Curry recipe

Whether you eat meat or not, Quorn is a household name which is synonymous with convenient protein-rich meat-free products making life easier for everyone from competent cooks to those who can just about manage to throw a ready meal in the microwave.

Since they ditched the egg white binding ingredient in favour of vegan-friendly pea protein, even more people can enjoy their wide range of products from Quorn mince and pieces which can be used in a huge variety of recipes from curry to spag bol, to quick and easy ready meals like meat-free shepherd's pie.

My entire family eats meat but it's so convenient to make a protein rich healthy meal using Quorn that I do include it in our meal planning. My son looks after one vegetarian and one meat eating child and finds they both love his Quorn-based meals which saves him cooking two meals at tea time.

Quorn sausages are particularly popular with both my family and the children we look after so meat-free toad in the hole is always a winner,

At a Quorn cookery event at the Underground Cookery School in London recently however I found a new delicious way to serve the sausages cooked with a zingy wholegrain mustard and sweet sticky honey glaze making them the perfect party canapé.

At the same event we got to cook along with a Quorn expert chef and I made a gorgeous aromatic sweet potato and spinach curry using Quorn Pieces (find them in the frozen aisle) instead of the chicken I might have added.

Because you don't have to worry about the Quorn cooking through in the way you have to with chicken, the dish was super fast to make and so nice. It smelled divine with curry powder, cumin, garlic  and ginger along with onions, Quorn pieces and spinach. (full recipe below)

It tasted amazing too. I particularly liked the sweetness from the mango chutney we added. We served the curry with plain boiled rice and a coriander garnish.

  1. I've never tried the quorn pieces. Do they have a taste or do they just take on the flavour of the spices?

    1. I didn't try the Quorn before I added it to the curry but it definitely took on the flavour of the spices and had a nice texture .
