Ingredients

  • For the chraimeh marinade
  • 1 pack of Quorn Pieces
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp carraway seeds
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 birds eye chilli
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 10ml vegetable oil
  • Salt to taste
  • 200-300ml water
  • 400g sweet potato, peeled & spiralized
  • To serve
  • Small handful of coriander
  • 25g flaked almonds
  • 20g pomegranate seeds

Method

  1. Add the garlic, ground spices, chilli, and oil in a blender or processor and blitz into a paste
  2. Heat a large pan over a medium heat. Once hot, add the spice paste, sugar, lime, tomato paste, water and mix well. Add the Quorn Pieces and toss until evenly coated and simmer for around 12 minutes
  3. Add the sweet potato spaghetti to salted boiling water and blanch for 5 minutes until just cooked – too long and they’ll start to fall apart.
  4. Serve with freshly chopped coriander, flaked almonds, and pomegranate seeds.
