Quorn satay noodles
Are you a ravenous carnivore? Yup, me too, but bear with me. While I have no intentions of giving up the meaty loveliness anytime soon, I think its good to give yourself a wee break every now and again. If you’ve never tried Quorn before, give it a go – it’s surprisingly yummy, high in protein and low in fat . The chicken pieces and fillets are my favourite and the mince is pretty good too. Give the sausages a miss though – they taste more like sawdust than sausages.
250g Quorn chicken style pieces, defrosted (they defrost in the microwave in 2 minutes)
1tbsp veg oil
2tbsps red Thai curry paste
2tbsps crunchy peanut butter
2tbsps concentrated coconut cream (If you use the thinner coconut cream than comes in a tin, use half a tin)
2tbsps dark soy sauce
300g udon noodles, straight from the pack
3 spring onions, sliced
Heat the oil in a large pan, add the quorn pieces and cook for a few minutes. Add in the curry paste, peanut butter, coconut cream, soy sauce and water. Add the udon noodles to the sauce and let everything bubble and simmer away for ten minutes. Take off the heat and add the sliced spring onions. Serve up and enjoy.
