Veggie potato bake

So I may not be taking part in #veganuary but I have cut down my meat consumption a lot & am quite proud of myself for doing so ☺️

It’s made me try new foods & put together more varied dinner ideas (that are suitable for my tummy of course!)

I’ve started to use a lot of quorn which I am loving, I buy the frozen packs from Aldi & they’re so quick & easy to use! Perfect for if you want a quick meal, or want to food prep. It also gives me that extra protein so I know I’m getting a good balance between all of the macronutrients!

This recipe can be made vegan, just remove the quorn & swap the cheese 🧀 for a vegan alternative 🌱

If you’re ok with dairy the dish is also fodmap friendly

So here it is, as like most of my dishes the recipe serves 1;

Ingredients;

  • 100g Quorn mince (I use the frozen one)
  • 1 Carrot chopped
  • 75g Aubergine chopped
  • 60g Courgette chopped
  • 1/4 Massel 7’s vegetable stock
  • 1 Tsp oregano
  • 1 Tsp mixed herbs
  • 150g chopped tomatoes
  • 1 medium sized potato, sliced
  • A handful of grated cheese (optional) I use Low Low

Method;

  1. Start by boiling your carrots for 5 minutes
  2. Once boiled add your carrots and all your other ingredients, (excluding the potato and cheese) to a separate saucepan, add two tablespoons of water
  3. Simmer gently for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally
  4. Whilst your quorn and veggies are simmering boil some water and add your sliced potatoes. Cook until soft (around 10-15 minutes) – put your grill on to start to warm up
  5. Once simmered add your quorn mix to an oven proof dish, top with your cooked sliced potatoes & top with your grated cheese (if using)
  6. Pop under the grill to crisp to your desire 😋

P.S this can easily be prepped ahead (which is what I done) I pre cooked my quorn veggie mix the day before & added to my ovenproof dish. The following day I warmed the oven at 180• & re-heated. Whilst my mix was re-heating I boiled my sliced potatoes & once cooked added on top of my quorn mix, added the grated cheese & grilled 🧀
