Quinoa and Dukkah Quorn Fillets

Here’s a quick and tasty option for all the vegetarians out there, or those looking for something to cook on Meat Free Monday!

Quorn is a great alternative to other soy derived meat alternatives on the market, as it is made of mycoprotein, from a member of the fungi family. Quorn is a good a source of protein, fibre, is cholesterol free (as it is plant based) and is low in saturated fat. This paired with a bit of the delicious spice dukkah and our favourite ‘super grain’ quinoa is a winner both taste wise and nutritionally (but don’t forget your half a plate full of veges/salad!)
