Here we are, a quick and easy vegetarian main meal. Quorn is a staple in our house, and it has the advantage of being quick to cook from frozen.
All my measures are approximate because I just eyeballed mostly, and it makes three portions, one for me, one for boyfriend, and one for lunch!
- 120g Dry rice (wet rice weighs more!)
- 350g Quorn Mince
- Courgette (I only had half a large one and that was enough)
- 1 Onion
- 350g Tomato Pasta Sauce (I used Dolmio Sun Ripened Tomato and Marscapone, boyfriend says you can actually make tomato sauce, but when he says these mad things I just clamp my hands over my ears and run out of the room)
In one saucepan I boiled some water, and added the rice and essentially left that for 20-25mins. In another saucepan I poured a small amount of oil then fried the mince, onion, and courgette until the Quorn had browned slightly. Then I added the sauce and left that to cook for another 15min ish, stirring occasionally. Then I served it! Pretty low level effort!
My guess is that this meal is around 500 calories based on the amounts I used.
