Yesterday evening, I made this divine one pot dinner! This isn’t vegan because I used quorn in here. Quorn is a vegetarian substitute for meat. It is made from a myco protein from a plant-based origin & it is derivates from mushrooms. It has a fungus protein in it & is very healthy, has a low cholesterol level ( less than 3% ) & is rich in protein & fibers. In this brand: Quorn Tm, it also has egg protein in it, so it isn’t vegan at all.
I don’t know if there is another quorn brand that hasn’t got this ingredient in their quorn! The quorn bites are like smaller tofu blocks & white grey in colour. You need to fry them or fry them & boil them in a sauce for a better flavour. On the package they say, that you have to add them to your favourite sauce & simmer them for about 12 minutes. you don’t need 12 minutes if you sauté them first in olive oil with spices or without spices. This is a wonderful one pot dinner with spices like mild curry powder, half of a green chili pepper with seeds & lovely reduced coconut milk! Yum!
Recipe: For 3 persons
200 gr runner beans, cleaned, top & tailed & cut into 2 cm pieces
2 sweet potatoes, peeled & cut into 2 to 3 cm pieces
1 young green courgette, cleaned, cut into smaller rounds, each cut up
5 spring onions, cleaned, cut into smaller rounds ( white & green parts )
2 fat cloves of garlic, peeled & finely cut up
1 green paprika ( bell pepper ), cleaned, seeds & white bits removed, cut into smaller strips
1 piece of fresh ginger, 8 cm long & 2.5 cm thick, peeled & cut up finely
1/2 green chili pepper, seeds kept & cut up finely
juice of 1/2 lime
1 can of good coconut milk, opened, the 2 parts of the coconut milk,well joined with a whisk!
200 gr = 1 packet of quorn neutral pieces
some Maldon sea salt
1 teaspoon of mild curry power + 3 teaspoons = 4 teaspoons in total!!!
a fruity evoo
1. Boil your runner beans & sweet potato chunks in salted water until nearly al dente. It took me 6 minutes. Drain well. I did this 30 minutes before making my dinner.
2. Take a large cooking pot, type Creuset & heat up on medium-high & add drizzles of oil. When hot, add cut up ginger, garlic, spring onions & cut up green chili pepper. Also, add 1 teaspoon of mild curry powder & stir to combine. Fry for about 4 minutes & lower your heat if you need to. Pour a few more drizzles of that evoo & add cut up courgette, pepper strips & quorn pieces. Add also 3 teaspoons of mild curry powder & stir around the quorn pieces & rest of the veggies. Fry for about 4 to 5 minutes until quorn pieces are browned & fried on all sides & are yellow from the curry powder & the courgette & green pepper strips are nearly ready. no, pour the coconut milk all over the veggie mix & reduce for about 1/3. Now, add cooked runner bean & cooked sweet potato pieces. Stir everything carefully round into your hot Creuset pan & reduce the sauce by 1/3. This will take about 5 to 7 minutes on medium high fire. Place the fitting lid on, if needed. After 5 minutes of cooking, check the sauce consistency. My sauce was ready & check the seasoning. I add a few pinches of sea salt & stirred it in. tasted again & it was just right. Serve instantly with a loved one & enjoy yourself doing that! MMM!

My home grown pumpkin plant, that I put in a large container, I put it in the ground, a while ago, before the first flowers were there & it is doing so much better now. The 2 first pumpkin balls have formed,…yeah! It is growing bigger each day,… Yes! I have placed a smaller container of edible flowers besides it. I grew them also from seed!
