    I didn't want to leave you greenies out so thought I would give you some green day recipes as well. Yes, I know that there is a recipe thread above, but the recipes are all mixed up, so I though that at least here you can select green or red!

    Starting off with:-

    Quorn, Leek and Potato Soup

    3 plain quorn fillets
    1 onion
    2 sliced leeks
    100g cubed & peeled potato
    1/2 tsp dried rosemary
    600g vegon
    300ml skimmed milk (HEXA)

    1. Saute the onion, leek and potato in a pain for ten mins until tender using frylight. (Butter frylight would be good)
    2. Add stock, rosemary and quorn fillets. Cover and simmer for 15 mins.
    3. Remove quorn fillets and wrap in foil to keep warm.
    4. Using a food processor blend the ingredients in the pan slightly so still a chunky texture. Then shred the quorn fillets and add back into mixture.

    Lentil Dhal

    This is the best lentil curry that I have ever had.

    · 200g (14 oz) red lentils
    · 1 large onion, diced
    · Frylight
    · 2 tablespoons curry paste, such as Pataks
    · 1 tablespoon curry powder
    · 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
    · 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    · 1 teaspoon chilli powder
    · 1 teaspoon salt
    · 1 teaspoon caster sugar
    · 1 clove garlic, minced
    · 1 teaspoon minced root ginger
    1 (600g) jar passata

    1. Rinse the lentils in cold water, the place in a saucepan with cold water. Bring to the boil and then spoon off the scum. Simmer for about ½ hr.
    2. While the lentils are cooking: In a large frying pan or saucepan, caramelise the onion frylight.
    3. While the onions are cooking, combine the curry paste, curry powder, turmeric, cumin, chilli powder, salt, sugar, garlic and ginger in a mixing bowl. Mix well. When the onions are cooked, add the curry mixture to the onions and cook over a high heat stirring constantly for 1 to 2 minutes.
    4. Stir in the passata and reduce heat, allow the curry base to simmer until the lentils are ready.
    5. When the lentils are tender, drain them briefly (they should have absorbed most of the water but you don't want the curry to be too wet). Mix the curry base into the lentils and serve immediately.
    Whole curry serves 8 and is 1 syn per portion.

    Thanks for these.
    I'd never have thought of using Quorn in soup, even though I've eaten it daily for the better part of 17 years! lol
    Have you actually made the soup? I might try it tomorrow.
