  • 4 Quorn Vegetarian Fillets

  • 1 lemon

  • 1 tbsp capers

  • 4 echalion shallots

  • 3 garlic cloves

  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter

  • For the chilli broccoli:

  • 200g tender stem broccoli

  • 1 tsp red chilli flakes


  1. Mix the flour with salt & pepper and put on a flat plate. Coat the Quorn Fillets in the seasoned flour, dusting off the excess.
  2. Heat a frying pan and add the olive oil and butter. Once the butter has melted, add the Quorn Fillets and cook for around 12 minutes on a medium heat until browned all over and piping hot throughout. Remove from the pan and put on a plate to one side.
  3. Peel and finely chop the shallots and garlic and add to the frying pan, cooking gently for 5 minutes until softened, add the vegetable stock and cook for 2-3 minutes until the sauce has thickened slightly.
  4. Add a few thin slices of lemon, along with the remaining juice and zest and the capers. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
  5. Return the Quorn Fillets to the pan. Chop the parsley and garnish. This is your Quorn Fillets Piccata.
  6. For the broccoli – bring a pan of water to boil then add the tender stem. Cook for a couple of minutes until tender but with a bit of bite. Remove from the pan then toss the broccoli with the chilli flakes, a drizzle of olive oil and salt & pepper to taste.
  7. Serve the Quorn Fillets Piccata with the cooked broccoli side.
