squeeze of lemon juice

METHOD

1. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a non stick pan and fry the quorn pieces on a medium heat until they take on a golden colour

2. Remove quorn from the pan and put aside on a plate

3. Using the same pan, heat the remaining tbsp of oil and add the onion, chilli and pepper. Stir fry until onion and pepper soften a little

4. Put in the soy sauce, tomato ketchup, ground coriander/cumin and lemon juice. Mix well and put on a low heat and cook for 10 minutes so that the flavours infuse
