Tasty Taco Tuesdays at THE PALM
I love it when my Meatless Monday recipes move over to Tuesday’s :-) it’s hard to believe what you can substitute these days when it comes to feeding your body with nutritional meals that don’t harm our beautiful animals. Not to mention obtaining healthy sources of protein our family needs living a busy and active lifestyle.
That’s why I love working with Quorn as we share the same philosophy in life. Inspiring families with delicious and irresistible recipes, packed full of flavour and bursting with new taste experiences from around the world. It’s all about eating food that's better for us and better for our planet. Did you know Quorn has 90% less saturated fat, 90% lower carbon footprint than lean mince beef and uses a 10th of the water needed and 1/8th amount of land to produce!!! I love being a part of this movement and love their vision for Sustainable Nutrition™ which is so informative, including this video.
We recently opened up a new cafe THE PALM and I have been experimenting with the menu. I am trying to find fun ways to educate my local and online community about ways we can reduce our carbon footprint and introducing other meat alternatives. Hence loving this Quorn mince alternative as I have used this product to experiment with my traditional Stuffed Serbian Roast Peppers, Spaghetti Bolognese, Burgers and of course the famous Mexican Tacos.
To me its all about exploring and eating various cuisines and feeling better. As an active family and mother to four young children, I want to teach them how we can make a difference in the world and save our planet. So its great to be doing this with quality foods like Quorn that make my life easy as a mum when I want to share foods we used to eat when they traditionally had meat in them.
Quorn is a protein-rich meat substitute that is healthy for not only us but our wonderful planet as well – it’s so easy to cook with and its versatile range tastes delicious. If you lead an active lifestyle that requires a good amount of protein, then Quorn is a great option as it’s so easy to switch in place for regular meat. You can still eat all your favourite meals – whether that’s fajita wraps, burgers or sausages – just by making an easy switch.
Here is a mid week favourite of ours!
Tasty Taco Tuesdays at THE PALM
2 packets Quorn mince
1-2 cans of diced tomatoes
1 chopped onion
1 minced garlic
1 tsp cumin
1tsp smoked paprika
Salt and pepper
1 avocado mashed
1-2 diced radishes
½ cup of chopped chives
2 cups of chopped kale
2 tablespoon dukkah
1-2 lemons cut in wedges
1-2 packets of soft tacos
Heat pan with a splash of water, saute onions with garlic until soft, add Quorn mince and simmer. Mix diced tomatoes with cumin, smoked paprika and add to the pan and simmer for 2 minutes. Add some water if the sauce thickens. Preheat oven and place soft tacos to warm up. Wash kale or use any type of green salad and chop to bite sizes. Remove taco shells and mixture from stove, create a taco base station and get everyone to place their very own toppings from smashed avocados to radishes, onions etc… Serve with some yoghurt and tomato salsa. Enjoy!
Here are some of my other favourite Quorn creations;
Burger With The Lot
This would be one of the best tasting burgers I’ve had in a long time. The quality of this burger mix is next level. Jam packed with flavors you will need to experience it yourself next time you come visit us at THE PALM.
Not to mention falafels, they are one of my fave’s! I mix my chick peas with the Quorn mince for that added goodness and texture! Check out the end result. So delicious and jam packed with vitamins and protein.
Its so great to see brands embracing the recycle path and cutting the amount of packaging they use. It’s all about taking baby steps, which is where it all begins in our home and I know together we can have a massive impact in the world. How good are these recyclable pouches?
These pouches are available at your local supermarket in the freezer section so make sure you give them a go next time you go shopping. Please let me know what you think as I know you will love creating delicious Quorn recipes that you and your family will love.
Tag me on social media #danistevens as I would love to see more of your creations.
