QUORN O'VIN

100g Quorn pieces (or chicken if preferred)
100g mushrooms sliced
180ml hot stock
100ml red wine
1 tablespoon tomato puree
1 teaspoon mixed dried herbs
½ tablespoon cornflour
2 tablespoons fresh parsley

Instructions

  1. Sauté the onions and garlic until golden
  2. Add the Quorn and mushrooms and cook for 3 minutes.
  3. Add the stock and wine and bring to the boil, reducing to a simmer until the liquid has reduced by 1/3
  4. Stir in the tomato puree and herbs and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Simmer for about 15 minutes.
  5. Blend the cornflour with a little water and add to the saucepan, stirring until the sauce has thickened.
  6. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
