I’ve made this so many times now, super easy and tasy! Plus it’s nice and easy to make, not to much fuss to put together

Very easy, very tasty. Quick. Will make again. Would also fill a wrap nicely with some sour cream/salad. Not sure about the milk comments - I assume the recipe has changed???

Response from Quorn

Hi Sue, yes it has! We adapted the recipe after reading feedback from consumers :) Glad you enjoyed it!

Replaced tin tomato’s with passata and OMG it was delicious. Could use a little more heat as it’s very mild but that’s easily adjusted to each persons tastes.

It was going well until I added the milk. I guess the heat was too high and it curdled and ruined the whole thing :( just be wary or that happening if you make this recipe.

One of the best meals I’ve made in a while! So much taste and so filling
