Here are 5 Quorn dishes that we love here at ProBikeKit:
A steaming hot casserole is desirable as a Sunday meal after you’ve come in home from cycling many miles. Regain your energy levels with this quorn casserole dish which consists of mushrooms, beans, lentils, tomato passata and of course some quorn sausages – very high in protein and low in fat, and has two of your five a day!
Choose from red, yellow, orange or green peppers to stuff your quorn mince and rice (or cous cous) with. Drizzle some sour cream with some small bits of parsley as the crown of your stuffed peppers, or even sprinkle some cheese and let it melt through the stuffing.
Chilli Con Carne
Quorn meat and kidney beans, seasoned with chilli powder, cumin, and a couple of cloves of garlic in a rich tomatey sauce. Add a small addition of onions in there too for some extra flavour and substance if you fancy it, topped with sprinkles of fresh parsley. This dish is very high in protein and low in fat – you can have it with white basmati rice for that carbohydrate kick, some sweet potato wedges, or some nachos.
A bowl of spaghetti bolognese is a favourite amongst quorn recipes, being a great source of carb loading, especially the night before a long ride or race. Add some quorn mince in a bolognese sauce for some protein – it’s quick, simple and delicious!
Quorn Ale & Mushroom Pie
One of the simplest, yet delicious quorn recipes around is a quorn pie. Bundle some meat free steak strips in the oven with mushrooms and onions, you’re favourite choice of ale, roll out some puff pastry and you’ll have yourself a pie – serve with mash and gravy for a hearty Sunday meal!
