Chefs tip

This tasty dish is a family favourite and a great one to easily sneak the veggies in! Feel free to switch to reduced-fat coconut milk and instead of coconut oil, you could also use an alternative such as vegetable oil.

We thought we’d try this recipe and we’ve absolutely fallen in love with it! The sauce and Quorn together are perfect! We’re now thinking of bulking it out a little with some vegetables but apart from that, it was a perfect and easy-to-follow recipe!
