  • 300g Quorn Pieces
  • 180g uncooked long grain rice, rinsed in cold water
  • 200g tub salsa
  • 150g sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 tin kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 400ml vegetable sock
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
  • 100g Red Leicester cheese, grated
  • 2 spring onions, sliced


  1. In a large pan, pour in the rice, salsa, sweet potatoes, kidney beans and stock. Mix well and cook over a medium heat.
  2. Bring to the boil, stirring frequently, and then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer with the lid on the pan. Cook gently for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Stir in the Quorn Pieces and cayenne pepper, return to a gentle heat for another 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat, add seasoning to taste and run a fork through the mixture; the rice should be fluffy and the sweet potatoes tender. Stir through the chopped coriander. Sprinkle over the cheese and return the lid to the pot to allow it to melt. When ready to serve, sprinkle over the sliced spring onions.

Love your recipes but this isn’t one of them. Lacks so much flavour! All gets lost in the cooking..

Whole fam loved this - a rare thing. Having seen Jonny's feedback on taste, I did add extra salsa, coriander, cheese and a dessert spoon of Worcestershire sauce. Delish! Further tip: sweet potato would prob benefit from a pre-saute step.

Really nice and simple one pot dish. I used probably double the water in mine, and did add extra seasoning and coriander.
