1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Salt and pepper to taste

Chopped peanuts (for garnish, optional)

For the Peanut Sauce:

3 tablespoons peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)

2 tablespoons soy sauce (low-sodium)

1 tablespoon maple syrup or agave nectar

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (adjust to your spice preference)

2-3 tablespoons warm water (for thinning the sauce)


1. Prepare the Peanut Sauce:

In a bowl, whisk together peanut butter, soy sauce, maple syrup (or agave nectar), rice vinegar, sesame oil, grated ginger, and red pepper flakes.

Add warm water gradually, stirring continuously until the sauce reaches your desired consistency. Set aside.

2. Sauté the Quorn:

In a large skillet or wok, heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil over medium-high heat.

Add the Quorn pieces and sauté for 4-5 minutes, or until they develop a golden-brown colour and are heated through. Remove from the pan and set aside.

3. Stir-Fry the Vegetables:

In the same pan, add more oil if needed.

Add minced garlic and stir-fry for about 30 seconds until fragrant.

Add the sliced red and yellow bell peppers, julienned carrot, broccoli florets, and sliced courgette to the pan.

Stir-fry the vegetables for 4-5 minutes until they are crisp-tender and vibrant in colour.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

4. Combine Quorn and Vegetables:

Return the sautéed Quorn to the pan with the stir-fried vegetables. Stir to combine and heat through for 1-2 minutes.

5. Serve with Peanut Sauce:

Divide the Quorn and vegetable mixture between two plates.

Drizzle the peanut sauce over the stir-fry.
