It’s definitely the right weather for tasty warming dinners and this is a family favourite in our house. We have a gluten intolerant carnivore hubbie, a vegetarian mummy and eat anything teenager, so making just one dinner can be a bit tricky at times!
A non chicken casserole always goes down well with everyone!
You’ll need –
A packet of Quorn chicken style pieces
Half a tub of cream cheese with sweet chilli (we tend to use supermarket own brand as it’s cheaper!)
Vegetables – again use your family favourites, we always have something very colourful just brighten up a dark winter evening or failing that – whatever is left in the fridge from last nights dinner! For this version we have green beans and carrots
1 -Fry of the quorn pieces (straight from the freezer) in a little hot oil top brown it off.
2- Whilst this bit is going on, par boil the veg in a little boiling water until just soft.
3- Stir the cream cheese and a touch of milk into the Quorn and allow it to melt into a yummy gooey sauce (that’s my Nigella moment!)
4- Stir in the cooked vegetables and cover and simmer for about 20 minutes!
5- We served ours tonight with creamy mashed potatoes, but jacket spuds, pasta or rice do just as well! –
(Sweet peppers, mushrooms and red onions can be a good substitute veg if you like – and make a sort of non Chicken a la king!)
Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!
