Low in saturated fat
Source of fibre


  • 8 Quorn Vegetarian Sausages
  • 500g gnocchi
  • 150g cavolo nero or spinach, sliced
  • 1 medium leek, thinly sliced
  • 5 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • A few sprigs of fresh rosemary & thyme (dried will also work)
  • 500ml vegetable stock
  • 100g light cream cheese/reduced fat creme fraiche
  • 2 tsp mustard
  • Vegetarian parmesan
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch (optional)


  1. Start by frying the Quorn Vegetarian Sausages according to pack instructions in a pan with a little olive oil.
  2. Remove and set aside, then in the same pan, add garlic, onion, herbs and leeks. Fry for several mins until fragrant.
  3. Add the stock, a few generous dollops of light cream cheese or creme fraiche and mix well before adding mustard, fresh thyme and rosemary and season to taste. If you need a thicker sauce at this stage, mix the cornflour with some hot water and pour into the sauce. Stir until combined and the sauce has thickened.
  4. Then add in the cavolo nero/spinach and simmer until lightly wilted. Add the gnocchi and allow to simmer in the sauce for just a couple of mins until cooked through.
  5. Pop the Quorn Vegetarian Sausages back on top, grate over parmesan and then heat under the grill for 5-10 minutes until the Quorn Sausages are warmed and the cheese is melted.
