  • 4 Quorn Vegetarian Fillets
  • 1 Cos lettuce, roughly chopped
  • Small bunch of kale, stems removed and roughly chopped
  • ½ a small loaf of crusty bread, torn into chunks
  • 1 can of chickpeas, drained, rinsed and thoroughly dried
  • ½ teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • Olive oil
  • For the dressing:
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • 1 garlic clove, grated
  • 2-3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 200˚c / 180 ˚c fan/gas mark 6.
  2. Mix the chickpeas in a bowl with a tablespoon of olive oil and some salt and pepper. Pour into a parchment-lined baking tray in a single layer, and bake for about 45 minutes until crisp, giving them a shake every now and then.
  3. Add the torn bread to a separate baking tray, and drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes, turning every 10 minutes or so, until golden and crisp.
  4. Place the Quorn Fillets in a bowl, and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, smoked paprika, dried oregano and season with salt and pepper. Massage into the fillets well to coat.
  5. Heat a griddle pan over a high heat, and add the fillets. Cook until charred on both sides and hot through in the middle. Remove from the heat and slice into strips.
  6. Mix all the dressing ingredients together in a jar, and pour half over the kale leaves. Use your hands to massage the dressing in for a few minutes.
  7. Add the Cos lettuce, croutons, and chickpeas, and the rest of the dressing, mixing thoroughly.
  8. Serve onto plates, and top with the sliced fillets.

This was so quick and delicious - also good without the chickpeas for a lighter salad. The mix for the quorn is particularly tasty.
