    Recipe of the Week

    Hello!

    So I got bored of having chicken curry, bolognese, and grilled chicken & chips, and decided that I would challenge myself to make one new recipe every week. I'm a bit experimental and get sidetracked in the kitchen, I usually don't often measure my seasonings, spices, or vegetables... I also cook til it "looks right" rather than for 10 minutes, etc etc...

    This week, I heard the word "stroganoff" and thought it was an ace word, so decided to find out what it was... haha.

    Recipe is adapted from the Quorn Kitchen cookbook, and you could quite easily substitute more vegetables instead of Quorn, or chunks of beef. Chicken might work too!

    Quorn Stroganoff 3pp per serving

    1 red onion, chopped
    1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
    150g Quorn Steak-Style Slices
    150g mushrooms, chopped
    1 x vegetable OXO cube & a dash of water
    1 tsp paprika
    2 tbsp WW Creme Fraiche
    Salt, Pepper

    (6pp for these quantities - Makes 2 servings)

    Fry off the onions and garlic til the onion starts to brown.
    Add mushrooms and Quorn, and cook for about 5 minutes.
    Sprinkle in the Oxo cube and paprika, stir fry for a few minutes
    Add a dash of water - I say a dash, it was probably about 50ml, just enough to make it a bit saucey. Simmer til it reduces down a bit (about 10 minutes I think)

    Stir in the creme fraiche and season well. Simmer for 5 minutes ish and serve.

    I had homemade potato wedges with mine, and it was really filling.

    Feel free to add to this thread

    what a fab thread! Maybe a sticky??? maybe even add pics?


    My fav one this week was Salmon kedgeree serves 4

    Ingredients -
    Fry light
    1 onion sliced
    2 tablespoons of curry powder (2pp)
    275g long grain rice (21pp)
    300ml veg stock (1pp)
    425g of red salmon drained with juice reserved (12pp)
    Juice of a lemon
    3 tablespoons of fresh parsley
    2 hard boiled egg peeled and chopped (optional) (4pp)
    Salt and pepper

    Method
    Heat a large non stick pan or wok and steam fry the onion for 5 mins or until soft.
    Add curry powder and cook for 30 seconds
    Stir in the rice (pre cook this or it goes harder), the stock and the salmon juice.
    Season with the pepper and salt and cover and simmer for 3 mins.
    Stir in the salmon and lemon juice and heat through.
    Scatter over the lemon and parsley and chopped egg if using. Serve at once.

    If this helps discover people it was 24.5 for the whole recipe with egg and 21.5 without.

    I worked its pp out to be 40pp for the whole lot so 10pp per serving.

    My new favourite - Prawn Linguine.

    (for one) 3pp for the prawn sauce + however much pasta you want!

    1 tsp olive oil
    1 shallot (or half an onion, v.finely chopped)
    2 cloves garlic
    1 small red chilli
    1/2 tin tomatoes
    1 tsp ketchup
    Black pepper

    Cook all of this together and cook as much linguine pasta as you want. I usually have 6pps worth, can't remember how much that is in weight, they all seem to be different depending on what make!

    Chuck in 100g of prawns and heat them through in the sauce.

    Stir in the pasta and enjoy!
