Quorn, mushroom and mustard casserole

I’m not usually a big fan of fakey meat products – I mean, I’m vegetarian for good reason – but there’s something about the cold weather that makes it appealing to fall back on simple protein-based stews and casseroles for dinner. I made up this recipe when my decidedly-omnivorous sister came round as a substitute for a similar dish that my mum makes, and it turned out really nice. It’s not very photogenic I’m afraid, but it does taste much better than it looks!

A classic combo of mushrooms, thyme, and white wine is given texture by the Quorn, which is torn into irregular pieces to give a – dare I say – meatier texture. Low fat creme fraiche gives acidity and a nice saucy base – you could swap it for half or full fat sour cream for a creamier, more decadent result. Mustard gives the whole thing a final warming kick, and serve with buttery mash for ultimate comfort factor. Give it a go!

    Since Christmas i have been eating more quorn, though i am not vegetarian . it defiantly gives you more options if you aren’t a big meat eater!

    Oooh, sounds divine! Anything mustardy gets my tastebuds tingling & this recipe is perfect as I’m trying to get back onto some more veggie-based stuff. Bravo, Katie!

    Just wanted to say I made this yesterday since I happened to have all the ingredients, and it was an awesome mid-week meal, really tasty. Thanks for the inspiration!
