Me and my boyfriend were recently on a cooking expedition; one of those “I can make that” trips that can either end horrendously or amazingly.
Luckily these ended up falling into the camp of the latter.
If you’re a fan of hot wings or just in love with Frank’s Hot sauce (like me) but you’re a veggie this might be up your street. (Recipe not vegan but I’m pretty sure you could find alternatives!).
4 frozen quorn fillets
For the coating;
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 garlic powder
1 cup milk
For the sauce;
Firstly you’re going to want to cook your quorn fillets. I like to use fry light (low fat cooking spray) to heat them up. No need to get them charred. You just want them unfrozen.
Whilst those are on the go get a glass bowl and crack your eggs; give ’em a whisk with the milk to combine them and set aside.
Also mix all your dry ingredients in another bowl and set aside.
Just take a minute to glug some vegetable oil into a frying pan and get it on that heat.
Whilst it’s getting hot you can do the fun part; coat the Quorn!
Cut the Quorn into whatever shapes you want- I just went strips but you could do the whole thing or chunks, the choice is yours!
Dip each piece in egg and then the flour and then egg and flour again; that’s right, we’re double dipping! Put the sticky mess on a plate and continue until all are done.
Place the battered Quorn pieces in the fridge for about 20 minutes to firm up.
~grab yourself a glass of red and take a load off~
Now your oil is good and hot you can grab the plate from the fridge and begin!
Pop as many pieces of Quorn in the pan that fit and cook. Flip after a few minutes and once it looks cooked (you’ll know) move into a plate with an appropriate tool.
Next is the best part, really; pour hot sauce ALL over them.
Now; eat. Add salad to feel healthier!
