Ingredients

  • 300g Quorn Pieces
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp mild chilli powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, thickly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, thickly sliced
  • 1 orange bell pepper, thickly sliced
  • 1 red onion, thickly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 pints of semi-skimmed milk
  • 200g penne pasta
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 65g grated cheese of your choice
  • handful of freshly chopped coriander

Method

  1. Coat the Quorn pieces in the spices and stir until evenly coated.
  2. Heat oil in large pan, add the peppers and cook for 2 minutes over a high heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes, or until the onion is softened.
  3. Add the Quorn pieces with the spices to the pan and fry for 2 minutes.
  4. Reduce to a medium heat and add the milk and the penne pasta, stirring constantly to prevent sticking.
  5. Cook for around 20 minutes until the pieces and pasta are cooked and the milk has reduced to a thick sauce.  Season to taste. Add more milk if necessary.
  6. Add the grated cheese and stir until melted.
  7. Remove from heat. Stir in the fresh coriander.

It was good up to when you add the milk and pasta, then it was weird. I'll just do up to that point next time and make the mix into normal fajitas with a bit of salsa and creme fraiche. The milk took about 30 to reduce down and then was a bit curdled with the oil and cheese. Not very nice.

Absolutely delicious! Had to add a little bit more of all the spice quantities but other than that it was great!

Great flavour! Next time I would just add almost double the pasta for a better Quorn to pasta ratio. I also substituted chilli powder for cayenne pepper and added mushrooms.

It was absolutely delicious. I added some more of the spices at the end. The only thing is that when I added the milk, some of the chicken pieces broke down because of the constant stirring. But other than that it was great!
