Quorn and Kefir Bolognese Sauce

Posted by on Jul 25, 2012 in Asides, Recipe | 0 comments

Quorn Bolognese This is a healthy Bolognese recipe that simply tastes really good.  Quorn works surprisingly well and the kefir adds a wonderful creamy texture.

I should first be honest and explain that I am not a vegetarian.  And the idea of eating fake meat makes me feel a little funny.  But I have heard so much about Quorn that I figured I would have to try it out before I passed any judgements on it.  And to be honest, Quorn is pretty darn good.

Serves 4 people (with pasta of course)

Ingredients:

  • 2 table spoons olive oil
  • Package of minced Quorn
  • A can of diced tomatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ½ onion
  • 10 button mushrooms
  • 1 zuccini
  • 1 cup of peas
  • ¼ cup of kefir
  • Salt and pepper
  • Few leaves of basil

 

Instructions

Finely chop the onions and smash the garlic before cooking the results in the olive oil.  Once the onions go soft, add the Quorn.  Add spices, and then toss in the can of diced tomatoes.  Add the kefir and let it mix in with the tomatoes and Quorn until it gets a nice creamy consistency.

 

Cook the veggies in the microwave for 4 minutes with a tad bit of water.  You can obviously steam them, or whatever you like, but the microwave cuts the time down.  Add the can of sliced tomatoes as well as the rest of the veggies you just cooked.  Add some salt and pepper to taste and there you go.  Put that sucker on your favorite pasta and you are all set for a super healthy and tasty meal.
