- 1/2 tsp dried crushed chillies
- 1 red chilli, finely chopped

- 200ml vegetable stock
- 1 tbsp corn flour, dissolved in cold water

- Combine the marinade ingredients in a bowl and add the defrosted Quorn Vegan Pieces. Mix well to ensure that all the vegan pieces are coated in the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavours to develop

The nation has spoken
This is super quick and tasty. I kept mine really simple as I didn't have any vegetables to hand (sugar snap/corn/carrot) and used sweet soy sauce in stead of the Hoisin. I didn't marinade the quorn, but instead added chilli powder and the 5 spices a minute before the end of frying the quorn and setting it aside. The fresh chilli and garlic were fried with the onion. It was quick and lovely.
