RECIPE: Spiced Quorn and Potato Traybake

This was one of those meals I didn't think much of prior to making it, yet it ended up being one of my new favourite meals. It's so simple to prepare, easy to make a meat and vegetarian version (my husband eats meat and I'm a vegetarian), seriously flavoursome and the leftovers are even better. Roasting tin meals are perfect for mid-week dinners because there's minimal washing up, anything that reduces washing up is a winner with me.

What you'll need:
(Serves 2)
4 Quorn fillets (defrosted) or 2 Chicken Breasts (halved)
250g New potatoes, washed and halved
2 tbsp. Greek or natural yogurt, plus extra to garnish
Vine tomatoes
Fresh coriander
1/2 tsp Tumeric
1/2 tsp Ground ginger
1/2 tsp Ground garlic
1/2 tsp Garam Masala
Olive oil
What to do:
1) Combine the yogurt, garam masala, turmeric, ground garlic, ground ginger in a bowl. Add the quoin fillets or chicken breasts, completely coat and marinate overnight (or for as long as you can).
2) Preheat the oven to 180'C. Place the halved new potatoes into an ovenproof dish with a glug of olive oil. If you're cooking chicken then put it on top of the potatoes and cook in the oven for 35 minutes. If you're using quorn fillets then just put the potatoes in the oven initially and cook for 15 minutes. 
3) Then place the quorn fillets on top of the partially cooked potatoes and put back in the oven for 20 minutes.
4) When there is 5 minutes left place the vine tomatoes on top of the potatoes/quorn/chicken.
5) Serve with fresh coriander leaves and Greek/natural yogurt
What's your favourite family meal?

  1. That looks yummy. I’ve not tried quorn but have gone off eating chicken (I’m pregnant) so it might be worth a try :)

  2. This looks delicious. I'm not vegetarian but we do sometimes have Quorn because I think it's great at absorbing flavours you add to it. Thanks for the idea x

  3. Winner winner non chicken dinner :) It sounds lovely and I'm now feeling very hungry. What a great yet simple dinner idea.

  4. Oooo this really looks delicious and we need to shake our meals up a bit. We will definitely be giving it a try x

  5. Mmm this looks great. I’m in the same boat as you - I’m a veggie and my other half eats meat. We do mainly eat veggie meals though because, like you say, saving on washing up is a winner and I don’t want to be cooking two dinners every night!

  6. Wow this looks so good. I could eat those potatoes all day long!

  7. i love a good tray bake especially when i'm so tired getting back from a busy working day - this is easy and nutritious and something that I would actually do!

  8. What a yummy recipe. Will love to try it.

  9. Mmm this looks lovely and so simple to make. I love the Quorn fillets, the spices sound delicious. I'll have to try this.

  10. Mmm this sounds lovely! All my favourite flavours. I nearly bought some quorn today in the supermarket but didn't as I thought it would defrost before I got home. Next time (when there's not such a long detour to get home!).

  11. This looks like a perfect summer dish!!! It is instantly making me think of summer evening in the garden with a glass of vino!

  12. That looks really tasty and healthy too

  13. Ooh I've never had quorn but this looks great! I bet it would great to try with chicken for us!

  14. This sounds yummy! And anything that can be made in just one tin or pan is a winner in my eyes :)
