Jennie Makes: Vegetarian Pasta.
Start by dicing two medium sized onions & peeling as many garlic cloves as you like. I only chop my onions roughly so it’s over quicker – my eyes stream SO much when I’m doing this, they’re even watering a bit just thinking about it! I'm pretty sure pre-chopped onions are the best thing ever, I don't know why I never buy them!
Pop a bit of oil into a pan and fry the onions over a high heat and add in some crushed garlic. I used 3 quite large cloves because I love love love garlic! After leaving those to cook for about 5 minutes until they start to soften slightly I added about half a packet of Quorn mince. Keep the pan over a high heat so the onions sizzle nicely & the Quorn mince starts taking on some of the flavour.
Then I added 1 tin of red kidney beans & would have popped in some butter beans too but I didn’t have any – bad times! After giving the sauce a stir I turn the heat right down and let it simmer with a lid on the pan for around 40-50 minutes.
