If you’re like me, you do your best to be WFPB24/7nonstopeverydaybro – but sometimes you just need to grab something quick and easy that doesn’t come with the guilt or diabetes that traditional fast food does.
Well, this recipe is made using stuff you can grab from a supermarket (Tesco’s in my case), is crazy delicious, costs about a fiver per serving and takes only 10 minutes to make.
For this recipe, you will need the following;
- Microwavable rice (Tilda Brown Basmati)
- Corn tortillas (Wahaca)
- Garlic and Chipotle Marinade (Wahaca)
- A handful of chestnut mushrooms
- A handful of leaf
- Quorn Chicken Pieces (or equivalent)
- A red onion
- I also used a dash of black pepper, a dash of cayenne pepper and one of our beloved chilli plant’s lil green progeny
- Chop your onion and mushroom – I tend to use the mandolin for even more speed
- Add a little water to a saucepan and turn to high heat. Do the same for a frying pan.
- Once the water is nice and hot, add the Quorn (about half the bag) to the saucepan and the mushrooms, onion (and chilli) to the frying pan. Turn both down to medium heat.
- After a minute or so, add the marinade to the Quorn. Yes, I know it says marinade, just trust me, ok?
- Stir both occasionally, while you put the rice in the microwave. Once done, set aside.
- At this point I add the pepper (black and cayenne) to the frying pan.
- Once the Quorn is heated through, add the contents from the frying pan into the saucepan and stir. The sauce will have absorbed almost entirely into the Quorn, but enough will be left to give a bit of flavourly stickiness to the onion and mushroom. Take off the heat.
- Chuck a couple of tortillas onto a plate and stick in the radiation box for 45 seconds. Once done, flip over and hit it for another 10 seconds. It’s best to only do a couple as they cool fast and you can quickly warm more when needed.
- Transfer your rice to a bowl, and the contents of the saucepan to another. Serve with the leaf, and your choice of salsa. We’re fans of the chipotle salsa from M&S.
