Italian Style Quorn Fillets

If you are regular readers of Mudpie Fridays then you will know that we are fans of Quorn. Having already shared a couple of other recipes with you – Simple Tomato Spaghetti with Quorn Cocktail Sausages and Quick, Easy & Healthy Tomato Risotto with Quorn Crispy Nuggets. Today I am writing about using their Quorn Fillets to make an easy Italian style dish. As I have mentioned before quick tasty meals are a must in our house. Inevitably we are running in from school or juggling various adventures we have planned. Which is where the fillets come in. They are kept in the freezer which means they are always on hand, plus they only take 12 minutes on the hob in whatever sauce you are cooking. They get a huge thumbs up from Hubby too so I can see us substituting these into other family favourites going forward. Since like other Quorn products they are high in protein and low in saturated fat.

Time to cook – 30 minutes

Serves – 4 adults (we have a little left over for the freezer when eating with the boys)

Ingredients – Italian Style Quorn Fillets

  • 7-8 Quorn fillets
  • Two small red onions or one big one
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 stick of celery
  • 5/6 brown cap mushrooms
  • Dozen large queen olives
  • 500g of Spinach
  • Vegetarian Mozzarella
  • 2 tablespoons of tomato puree
  • 2 tins to chopped tomatos
  • Dried Italian Herbs to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Pepper to season
  • New potatoes and green veg to serve

Method – Italian Style Quorn Fillets

  • Pre heat the over to 180 degrees (fan)
  • Pepare the vegetables – finely dice the onions, mushrooms, celery and garlic. Quarter the olives and wash the Spinach
  • Put the onion, celery and garlic in a pan with the olive oil and allow to soften before adding the mushrooms, season

  • Once cooked down add the puree and the chopped tomatoes with the olives. Bring to a simmer and then reduce the heat and allow the sauce to reduce
  • While the sauce is reducing cook the spinach down and prepare water for the accompanying vegetables
  • Slice the mozzarella

  • Once the sauce is ready put a layer of sauce in the bottom of the dish. Add the fillets and cover in the spinach before putting the rest of the sauce over the top.
  • Add the sliced mozzarella and season with pepper. Pop in the oven for 12 minutes until the mozzarella is browned on top.
  • While the dish is in the oven make sure the accompany vegetables are ready

Again there were empty plates at the end of dinner time. If you would like to watch the recipe you can see it on my youtube channel below:

    I have tried so much to get on with Quorn produce but it just makes my crohn’s so bad unfortunately. When I made it for the family they couldn’t tell the difference from Quorn & chicken!!

  23. November 15, 2018 / 5:32 pm

    Lovely recipe, I’m not a fan of Quorn personally, but then I don’t eat meat as I don;t like the taste of it. I could easily apapt the recipe to suit me though. #BloggerClubUK

  26. November 15, 2018 / 10:17 pm

    I’ve not tried quorn fillets for years, I wasn’t a huge fan when I did give them a go. I wonder if I should have another go with them though, and this recipe looks like a nice and easy but really tasty way to try them. #BloggerClubUK

    we love quorn and use the mince a lot for lasagne, spahetti bolognaise and chilili “sin” carne.

    We love quorn in our household. I’m vegetarian, my husband and son are not, but my son & I are both lactose intolerant. When our daughter and son-in-law visit, it’s even more complicated as my daughter is almost vegan (no dairy or eggs), my son-in-law is vegetarian and our granddaughter is lactose-intolerant but eats meat. My husband, who is the main cook in our house, often makes Indian food, and uses quorn in dishes such as rogan josh and lamb korma, so that all of us can enjoy eating them. Apparently the quorn mince tastes exactly like lamb mince when cooked in a curry.
