Kedgeree Pillowed Quorn Steaks

Originally this recipe called for fish, but I decided to swap it for peppered quorn steaks, and you know what? T'was no problemo at all! When it was ready, I let my new flatmate try some, and he said that maybe even he could become a vegetarian, so that is a good sign, right?

Kedgeree Pillowed Quorn Steaks
(Serves 2)

50g rice, or 100g cooked
200g bag spinach
2 eggs
2 handfuls of cheese, grated
Salt and pepper
A pinch of nutmeg
2 peppered quorn steaks

- Start by cooking the rice if it isn't already done, I used basmati that cooked in about 20 minutes in water with a little oil and a pinch of salt.

- In a medium casserole, wilt the spinach for a few minutes, stirring constantly until wilted, making sure not to burn it. Set aside to cool.

- Pre-heat the oven to 200°C.

- Now, in the casserole with the spinach, add the cooked rice eggs and a good handful of cheese.

- In a medium oven dish, spread half of the spinach mix at the bottom, place the two peppered quorn steaks over and then spoon over the rest of the mixture. Sprinkle over a generous handful of grated cheese, a light sprinkle of salt and bake for 35 minutes until cooked through. 20 minutes in, you can add 6 vine-ripened tomatoes so that they get nice and cooked.

- Serve on it's own, or with a side salad and enjoy!

Also! I repotted my avocado plant the other day - exciting times, I know! At 1 and a half year old, it is looking a little like this now:

Aint it purrdy?

So this weekend could not come quick enough, and I am exhausted, so just having a quiet evening today, but tomorrow I will have some friends around, and on Sunday it is Norway day! 17th of May is the National day of Norway, so I will head through to Edinburgh for the annual parade, veggie hot dogs and ice cream, cannot wait! What do you have on the agenda for the next couple of days? I hope you have a great time either which way! x

  1. I am so exhausted too! I am so glad it's the weekend :)
    I think I could be a vegetarian and just eat this all the time too. Have a great Norway Day!!

    1. Mmmm enjoy it to the fullest!
      I think you'd like this Cathleen :) Have an ice cream for Norway today :D Any excuse, right? :P x

  2. Ah, nam! Jeg bruker selv Quorn i "fiskegrateng" :-) Er jo ikke det samme næringsmessig, men deilig med smaken av barndommens fiskegrateng selv om jeg ikke spiser fisk lengre.

    Håper du hadde en finfin 17. mai :)

    1. Så luddig! :D Det vil jeg prøve også :) 17. mai regnet det masse, så det ble ikke så mange planene gitt, møtte en venninne på cafê og hadde veggis pølser og iskrem :D Håper du hadde en kjempefin nasjonaldag også Maria :) x
