• Hello and welcome to Food Friday! Tonight on the menu I thought we could try a little twist on the simple old favourite, Spag Bol.

    You will need:
    Quorn mince
    A tin of chopped tomatoes
    Tomato purée 
    Mixed peppers 
    Tabasco sauce (few shakes to personal taste)
    Generous splash of red wine 
    Chopped parsley 
    Dash of paprika 

    I love Spag Bol as it's basically a throw it all into 'one pot' then leave it to cook kind of dish. The fact it's made with Quorn also means it's super healthy and low fat!

    Just follow these steps for a quick, simple and totally delicious meal tonight:

    1. Chop onions, garlic and chilli and dry fry for a minute or two. This really brings out the chili kick! 

    2. Add the Quorn mince, chopped tomatoes, tomato purée, mixed peppers, mushrooms and Tabasco sauce (few shakes to personal taste). Then add a generous splash of red wine and some chopped parsley, a dash of paprika. Then season with a little cracked black pepper. 

    3. Stir all the ingredients together, put the lid on and leave to cook on a low heat. The longer you leave the sauce, the better it tastes, so I usually leave for about 30 minutes, if not longer. Don't forget to stir occasionally and add a little water if it starts to dry out. 

    4. Pop the spaghetti on to boil, then simmer for around 8-10 minutes depending on required taste.

    5. Serve with a little garlic bread for that extra touch. Yum!

    Thanks for reading xoxo
